Day Off

When James asked me if I wanted to go Kayaking on my day off, it sounded more like work to me. I’ve never been the out door person but he kept instigating it would be fun.

coffee The beginning of any good trip start with coffee. There’s this little place in Newport called Alta, probably the best coffee in town. Newport is always very chill and no one seems to be working. This is the best place for a workaholic to relax.

Kayaking  When we made our way to kayak I was a little worried it would be a lot of physical work. The guys joked that Gus would be the one doing all the work but I knew I could keep up if I tried. I found being out in the water was very relaxing, looking at the blue sky, hearing the birds.

food After, we cleaned up and asked the owners of the kayaking company where there is a good place to eat, they recommended Eat Chow. We figured we would try something new and check out this new place.

the beach  After we drove around town to  Huntington Beach and walked around. It seemed like everyone in town was outside enjoying the sun too.

shopping  Since we live about 40 miles away from the beach we knew that traffic was going to be bad. We hung out and shopped a little at The Lab. They have cute vintage stores and of course an Urban.

Days off – they’re the greatest! Now back to work 🙂

A Day with Friends

Let the day unfold before you, enjoy the company that surrounds you. Don’t worry about the details but appreciate them. Make up things to do in a new city, have a cup of coffee, take a walk, but more than anything remember to have fun. Life changes fast, delight in the people around you.
