Southern California new
Quick update of where we went in between Wyoming and Southern California. We spent a couple of days in Omaha, drove to Las Vegas for a wedding, spent a week in Pheonix, and ended it with a weekend in Prescott, AZ.
La Jolla was the perfect introduction to being vanlife beach bums. There are sooo many little beaches along the coast. We would’ve spent our days at more of them, but the cute little ones didn’t have more than one bar of service.
Here’s an idea of what a day looked like here:
- leave from parking spot about 6 am
- head to La Jolla Shores Beach
- park at the beach for the day (work, beach walks)
- go find a quieter beach to park at to make dinner
- hang out at the quieter beach till dark
- go find a new spot to park for the night
We spent three nights in the La Jolla area, and on the third day, we drove on over to Oceanside.
Okay so we actually only spent one night here and it was more of a pass-through. We walked around the morning before we left and it was a cute little area!
Redondo Beach & Hermosa Beach
The next three restaurants are located on the Pier in Hermosa Beach.
The next beach we stumbled upon was Pismo Beach. It was a nice beach for the day; there’s a section of the beach that you can directly park on, but we opted against that for fear of getting stuck in the sand. We did more exploring of the area later in the day and found some cool little caves, giant white cliffs, and a whole lot of birds.
