Well folks, this is my new neighborhood. Ain’t she pretty? Orange County. The pink heart is my house, the periwinkle star is my beach– we are only 15 minutes apart. I haven’t been able to do much exploring outside these 2 locations but as soon as I do, this is where I will share!
As for my beach- Corona Del Mar– an absolutly beautiful beach. There’s this historic feeling that takes you to mediterranean countryside. The beachfront houses all have their own indiviual characteristics- my favorite being glass french doors on the front patio wide open so the cool ocean breeze can blow straight through the house (this is a picture I need to take, this house is located on the street that I always park on, Jasmine Street).
Here are some photos of Corona Del Mar. PS- if you look long enough you can start to see the sun dance along the water.
