Last week Poppy & I went to visit David in California for a few days. His band has been touring the states for the past month with the wonderful Copeland and Eisley. So we decided to pop by for a quick hello to see their L.A. show and enjoy a day off (which Poppy totally surprised me by keeping it together way past her bedtime during the show and cheering at the end of each song).
We were made for California… The warm beach, the sun, the palm trees, the chill atmosphere, Canada needs a california and then we could have the best of both worlds. After a trip to New York before this we can definitely confirm our hearts are in the West Coast, so beautiful. We spent most of our time hanging on the beach since it was Thanksgiving in America so a lot of the places on our list to visit were closed. But that ended up being perfectly chill. If we had more time we would have loved to have gone river rafting. We adore adventure sports and California is a great place to give american river rafting a go. Once Poppy is older I am sure she would love to hit the water with us!
This was the beach right in front of our hotel in Venice. Currently walking to the playground, Poppy’s favourite part of the trip obviously.
We accidentally ended up walking along the canals and it was amazing! All of theses cool eclectic houses with their little docks on the canal just minutes from Venice Beach. We probably pointed out 50 different houses we want to live in.
Poppy loved watching people skateboarding and dancing along the promenade. “Weeee!”
The water was a bit too cold to go for a swim, I was pretty determined but then everyone else in the water was wearing wetsuits so I felt a little intimidated 😉 But David couldn’t resist dunking his head in the salty water.
Drawing Peppa Pig in the sand, by request of course.
I took her too close and she got drenched by a wave and is now too scared to go close.. oops!
Waking around Santa Monica at Sunset was awesome. So pretty and lively.
I had way too many photos that I loved to put them all into one post. I will publish a part two with the details of where we stayed, where we ate, etc.
