After running the 5k, we headed over to the Flower Fields of Carlsbad. Instead of paying $11 per person to go inside, we found a sneaky little road above them where we had a gorgeous, free view. It's only open for a few months in the Spring, and it is absolutely beautiful.
From our point of view, I couldn't get any great pictures but here's an aerial view. Photo from here.
Then we drove down to La Jolla to see the seals!
The next day, we ate lunch at one of my favorite little restaurants in Laguna Beach- Greeter's Corner. They have the best fish and chips!
We also went to Corona del Mar in Newport Beach, which has the most beautiful views and houses. Doug and I went to this beach last summer, where we explored the tide pools and wildlife.
Next post is my very favorite place in Southern California, Balboa Island!
