We hit two different beaches this weekend, one on a clear day, and one on a foggy day. We drove down Saturday morning, and headed straight to Doheny Beach, for a day of taking in some rays before summer ends (even though that doesn't seem to be happening any time soon). Then we headed to the campground for the afternoon, and night.
I was soooooooo excited to camp here, because for the first time in a while we were able to have a fire (there have been fire restrictions all summer in California because of the drought). Caspers Wilderness Park is a nice, and convenient place to camp if you live in SoCal, and if you're not in the mood to drive too far out of town. It is super close to the beach, and the mountains; which make it a great location for camping. After our exciting fire and smores action, the next morning we woke up to lots, and lots of rain. It was so peaceful in the van, waking up to the strong sound of rain.
That morning, we just lazied around camp- I read while Ian played guitar- waiting for the rain to stop. It was actually pretty nice- we drove around the nature center in the park, then headed to Salt Creek Beach Park before heading out of town. I really love foggy beach days, and Salt Creek Beach Park is beautiful- it is very well maintained and has super convenient parking, with a path straight to the beach. It was a great weekend spent in the Orange County area-something we don't do very often.
