San Clemente, San Onofre, San Juan Capistrano, California

San Clemente, San Onofre, San Juan Capistrano, California

November 8, 2010 No Comments South of Los Angeles you’ll find beach towns beginning with “San,” Spanish for saint. Our favorite saint destinations for family outings are the beach at San Onofre, the small seaside town of San Clemente, and the well known mission and historic town of San Juan Capistrano. San Clemente is a charming, laid back sort of ...

 

Carmel, California

Carmel, California

November 3, 2010 No Comments No, the town is not where they make caramels. No, they don’t have camels there, either. These were some of the questions asked when we first hit this picturesque California seaside town, a few years back, my family sharing a trip with another family, small children looking forward to the famous 17 mile drive as ...

Santa Cruz Boardwalk CA – Rides, Restaurants and Beaches Galore

October 23, 2010 1 Comment What child of any age – including you adults out there – doesn’t love a Ferris Wheel, a meri-go- round or a roller coaster.  Better yet, who doesn’t love coupling these attractions with sea air and a wooden boarding, the smell of the ocean mingling with popcorn, cotton candy, and french fries. In other words, ...

Ferndale and Mattole Road – Verdant Northern California Road Trip

October 22, 2010 No Comments This lush and beautiful part of Northern California is a destination in and of itself; for us it was part of a road trip that stretched up the California coast. We spent the night in Fortuna, highway convenient, basic, and quite pleasant. Before heading to the gorgeous Victorian town of Ferndale, we went north a ...

Cambria, Cayucos and Carpenteria, California – The three C’s

October 22, 2010 No Comments We love small beach towns in California. And we tend to visit some of our favorites, not that far away from our home in Los Angeles, every year. The reason: they each offer simple pleasures and plenty of sights to see, and each has their own distinctive and appealing character. When I asked my kids ...

October 21, 2010 2 Comments I’ve already described about the pleasures of beach going without the summer sun, crowds and hassles in and around Mendocino and Fort Bragg.  Now, let’s head farther north, clinging to Highway 1 through the picturesque town of Westport, and now a tiny spot with a lovely soft white sand beach for running, wave chasing, and ...

 

Autumn by the Sea: Mendocino, CA

Autumn by the Sea: Mendocino, CA

October 21, 2010 2 Comments There’s something wonderful about taking your kids to a non-tropical beach in autumn. You don’t have to worry about too much sun exposure because they’re already wearing a sweatshirt; you don’t have to bring the beach umbrella, the sun hats, the water toys. Instead, you can simply enjoy everything a beach has to offer BESIDES ...

Autumn by the Sea: Point Reyes & Tomales Bay, CA

October 21, 2010 No Comments After we left Bodega Bay, stuffed with fresh crab and carrying kites with our luggage, we weren’t quite ready to return to urban life, even if that brought us to the wonderful cable cars and chocolate shops of San Francisco.    Instead we headed for Tomales Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore just about ...

Autumn by the Sea: Shelter Cove Bodega Bay, CA

October 19, 2010 2 Comments My family and I had a great autumn get away to the coastal towns of Central and Northern California, and traveling inland to the Avenue of the Giants, the mecca of redwood trees.  Garberville California is a roughly 4 hour drive north from San Franscisco on the 101 freeway. Shelter Cove is a short drive ...

October 19, 2010 3 Comments It’s never too soon to introduce your children to a healthy diet. Which sounds boring. Which doesn’t have to be. One of the best ways to show your kids a good time and a good taste of fresh fruits, vegetables, organic cheeses and fun alternative snacks is by attending an old fashioned farmers market. No ...
