Starting Christmas Break with a Beach Run and a Boat

I love waking up on the West coast because of the 2-hour time difference from what I’m used to in Texas. So waking up at 8am with the sun already high and bright in the sky in California made for a perfect morning to run along the beach.

Running along the beach is now my new favorite running spot. It beats the treadmill for sure 🙂 We dominated some killer hills to run 7 miles in almost 1:15, with plenty of stops along the way to to take pictures or to admire the scenery. It sure doesn’t look like this in Texas.

We ate brunch at a cute, popular restaurant in Carlsbad where I tried kiwi for the first time. It was actually good!

Then walked along the beach. The hubs was the only one brave enough to touch the water. It was too cold for me.

Southern California may be close to Mexico, but they need to work on the quality of their margaritas and salsa.

We boarded on a yacht to look at a parade of lights on boats in San Diego Bay.

Dinner was delicious, with lots of gluten-free options! My heart can be stolen with a good spinach salad!

And the sunset was gorgeous!

The lights were so neat! The boats were decorated with Christmas lights in festive designs from Christmas trees to Rudolph pulling the boat. A definite must-do when in the area for Christmas!

I wonder how they get Christmas lights on these boats anyway…?


Let’s chat!

  • Do you have Christmas lights on your house this year? :: We didn’t have time for them this year 😦
