Never Turn Your Back On The Ocean!

Happy 2012 everyone!

I hope all of you had an amazing NYE! I know I had an amazing final week of 2011, and I am going to share all that excitement with you all this week. 

As you may already know, I spent a few days up in Sea Ranch with my best friend at her parents beach house. We were so sad to have to leave on friday after, because it was a fabulous couple of days full of exploring trails, watching movies, drinking wine, a little bit of blogging, and just simply relaxing! We took about a bajillion pictures but I'll try not to overwhelm you with too many. With out further ado, I'll just let the pictures do the talking (at least for the most part).

The drive to and from Sea Ranch is not particularly easy but it is beautiful. Driving slowly along the twisty turny Highway 1 can be a bit scary (especially when goats randomly decide to run in front of the car!) but it also lends itself to some beautiful views.

The views at the beach house did not dissapoint either. Although it was very cloudy, misty, and foggy (our hair and clothes were wet like we had just walked through the rain when we got home) we enjoyed every minute of walking the trails along the beach.

We also got really good at using the self timer on my camera, and finding creative places to set the camera to get a good shot of the two of us together.

And of course who could forget our couple of pics to document our evening in the house. Alex cooked. We enjoyed yummy wine. We played Mancala and Scategories (board games are still fun even at 22 years old!). And we watched a ton of movies- the highlight of which was definitely Mary Kate and Ashley's gem, Our Lips Are Sealed.

And of course, here are a few of my favorite pictures.

And last but not least here's a couple of awkward/funny, candid shots Alex got of me.

Overall, it was an AMAZING trip, but it was just the beginning of my NYE weekend. Still to come are stories from my time in San Francisco for the UCLA bowl game and NYE in the city! Stay tuned =)
