field trip to laguna beach

Laguna Beach is a gorgeous 15 minute drive
from Newport, straight down Pacific Coast Highway.

My friend, Nancy and I did a little shopping
and lunching there this week,
and soaked up the coastal-artsy vibe
that only Laguna Beach has.   

 Our first stop was the Laguna Gardens Nursery.
They have a great selection of succulents
and native plants, and
some creative pots and displays.  

Next, was a walk through downtown... 

Finally, we had the most amazing
lunch at the new Tommy Bahama restaurant.

We tried the lobster corn dogs as an appetizer,
just a lobster claw dipped in corn batter and fried,


A few little treasures from the thrift store. 

ciao! fabiana

I drive through Laguna everyday to workout at Bar method in Crystal Cove. I met a friend in town yesterday and we walked all around and had lunch at Zinc...but I didn't see half of this! Where is that thrift shop? I need to stop again!
