After finishing up my photoshoot in OC, I came back home and went on a non traditional dinner date with JP. We hopped on our bikes, and went through our usual path along the beach. Biked to our favorite spot to eat fresh omusubi’s and daikon salad, with hojicha tea. It was so refreshing, and the perfect way to spend the evening together. After our quick dinner, we biked home in the dark.
Yesterday evening, JP & I decided to ride our bikes over to Whole Foods, instead of driving the Smart. It’s a couple of miles away, but we figured out a shortcut by cutting through the residential roads.I had to pick up some last minute groceries for dinner. What a way to get a good workout and finish errands all on one trip!
It was definitely fun, refreshing, and relaxing. To me, it felt as if we were out of town on vacay!
See, got everything in my little basket!
I used to be a huge fan of living in Irvine, until I drove up the 405 to find this awesome place called LA. For years and years, everyone kept telling me to move to LA, but I guess personally, I wasn’t ready to make the jump on my own.
Our quality of life has like quadrupled, and we just feel blessed to call LA our home.
I know people always complain about the traffic, but hey, we live in SoCal, deal with it! There are places you can live that will have zero traffic, but then I’m sure it will be lacking a whole lot of everything else. So, we’re only here in this lifetime once, so suck it up and don’t let a little bit of traffic, stop you from enjoying what LA has to offer.
So, one of the perks of living in LA, is definitely the long stretches of bike paths right on the beach. Biking is already super fun, but it’s even better when you get a beautiful view of the water. Plus, you get that salty ocean breeeeeeeeze. Here’s just a couple of pics from our bike ride the other day. Enjoy.
Trisha and I hopped on our cruisers and headed towards Santa Monica pier. Along the way, we stopped off at the skate park to check it out. Only in California, would you have a skate park, overlooking the ocean. What a gorgeous view!
5 miles to Santa Monica Pier, then 5 miles back home. It was refreshing. Can’t wait for summer!
