{Sweet} San Clemente

My little hiatus is over, and I am starting to feel a little more inspired to blog {woo-hoo!}
I'm going to brag for a moment and say that I have the best husband ever.  For my 25th birthday in August, my husband planned a surprise day for me.  I HATE SURPRISES.  Literally.  I'm a control-freak, and I'm not afraid to admit it.  I hate going on for a whole week not knowing what surprise awaits me on the weekend.  What do I wear?  Should I bring a jacket?  Will these shoes be OK?  How long will be gone?...etc, etc, etc.  

So, after a little grumbling on my part, my husband let me open my gift and see what we were going to be doing for the weekend.  He had made a photo collage {impressive!} of photos of beautiful San Clemente, pictures of our beach cruisers, and the metro link.  I was thrilled! 

Here are some photos from our day...
In Old Towne Orange, ready to get on the train! 

 On our way!

 First stop:  La Galette Creperie.  An amazing crepe breakfast right on the coast!

No seaside breakfast is complete without a delicious mocha.  This one was awesome.


We strolled the pier and then lounged around the beach all day...I could think of far worse places to spend a day.

If you live in Southern California, I highly recommend using our public transportation system.  It's a luxury that we don't take advantage of enough!
The San Clemente stop on the Metrolink drops you off literally right on the sand (you can see the tracks in the picture!).  

After our day at the beach, we rode our bikes around the town, ate some delicious Mexican food, and stopped in many of the cute shops in Down Town San Clemente.  I'm already dying to go back!

I also got a white Fossil watch {which I love} - but spending this day with my husband was the best gift I could have ever received.  After our little rough patch, it was just what the doctor ordered.  And far more special than any material possession I could have been given.

One of the best days to date.
