Wanderlust: Hermosa Beach, California






I know I spend a lot of time on this blog dreaming of far-off destinations, but right now I'm feeling very grateful for my current home, Hermosa Beach, California. This Saturday, after running some mundane errands, Bradford and I put on our bathing suits, walked out onto our beautiful beach ("hermosa" literally means "beautiful" in Spanish) with surfboards in hand, and spent an hour playing around in the ocean. It was so refreshing. Last weekend I spent all day Saturday playing in a beach volleyball tournament. Add a great downtown scene to all the fun outdoor activities and you you have a city that is not only an awesome place to live but a perfect place to get away for a few days (or weeks).
