beach day in zuma, california

we’re having a little heat wave in los angeles, so jason and i took off for a getaway day at point dume up the coast. in stark contrast to our 90+ degree temps in echo park, the coastline was more like mid-70s with a light breeze, and so refreshing. as we drove up pch we noticed that the waves were huge!

we started our afternoon with oysters and a beer at the reel inn. once we got up to zuma, we were lucky enough to find a mini cooper-sized spot waiting for us [parking for normal cars was hard to come by]. we got all set up with the blanket & umbrella, i cracked open a book and shortly thereafter, fell asleep. beach nap!

once we awakened, we took a long walk down to point dume where the usual rock climbing suspects were scaling the cliffs. as we made our way back, we decided to try see if the sunset restaurant had room for us to have a light dinner. i’ve seen this place for years and either it hasn’t been open or i wasn’t planning to dine there, so trying it out has been a long time coming. turns out they have a nice menu and a lovely view.

we watched the sunset from our comfy booth, and waited out the traffic for a night drive home doused in bright moonlight on the water. summer has been short here in LA, but hopefully we’ll get another good beach day in before it cools down.
