My summer is officially over! Ugh, I know summer isn't technically over for a few more weeks, but I am back to work. I work in education and its time to get back to school, that's why my summer is over. I won't complain or cry, because it was a good summer and I have many great memories. This summer I was able to visit a few new (to me) places and luckily most were at the beach. Sometimes I can't believe some places I have never visited in my own state. Like Laguna Beach, yeah like the MTV show...lol I moved to Orange County a few years ago and slowly I have been discovering lots of spots I have never been too. One of them is Laguna Beach, not sure why I never made it there. Laguna Beach is actually not too far from me, but its one of those places that is a bit difficult to get to. Lucky for me, the man discovered a free bus that takes you into Laguna Beach every weekend during the summer. Who doesn't love free stuff! The service is offered by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) you park in a lot and they come pick you up and take you into Laguna Beach!
I was quite excited for this excursion, being I had never visited Laguna Beach and we were getting a free ride. The OCTA Summer Breeze bus takes you from a parking lot in Irvine to Laguna Beach every weekend all summer long. The route into Laguna Beach is a canyon road which tends to get congested on the weekends. Also Laguna Beach is a small beach town, traffic and parking can be an issue. Which makes taking the free bus ride a great idea!
This beach day was for exploring and getting to know the town. I had no intentions of laying out on the sand or getting into the ocean. I wanted to be comfy and keep cool, although the day turned out to be a bit overcast. Good thing I thought about bringing a light jacket, because the weather got a bit chilly and breezy. Exactly what is expected when your near the ocean, cool breeze and lovely weather.
Laguna Beach is a very eclectic kinda town, and is known for being an artist community. There is many art galleries all over and is famous for the Sawdust Art & Craft Festival. We didn't get a chance to stop at the Sawdust Festival, but there is still a few weeks left in summer and we plan to catch a free ride to head back into Laguna Beach. Our day was spent strolling the streets, peeking into all the galleries, shops and we even snuck into a few hotels. We even witness a wedding from a cliff over looking the ocean. It was a wonderful day, we enjoyed getting to know Laguna Beach. Oh there is also a free trolley in Laguna Beach which gets you all over town. So between the OCTA Summer Breeze Bus and Laguna Beach Trolley you can travel all over for FREE!!
