Laguna Beach

Beachy Bonfire

One of the many days I spent in Three Arch Bay in Laguna Beach was spent there around sunset. We had a bonfire and climbed around Whale Rock to see the sunset. Northwest Pearls: Beachy Bonfire

A cool trick we figured out is that you can put a plastic bottle of sparkling water (our bottle was green,) or a plastic cup filled with liquid, over the flashlight on your phone and create a sort of makeshift lantern to diffuse the light.

Do you have any bonfire or beach tricks?

Heisler Park in Laguna Beach

Northwest Pearls: Heisler Park I spent part of one of my days in Laguna Beach at Heisler Park. The beautiful park overlooks the ocean and the day we picked couldn't have been any nicer. The photos I took are some of my favorites from the trip.

The park has a massive whale sculpture, "Breaching Whale," by Jon Seeman. You can watch the lawn bowling club practice, or just take a walk around the park.

What's one of the prettiest parks you've been to?

Three Arch Bay

Northwest Pearls: Three Arch Bay One of my favorite places to visit in California is Three Arch Bay, a private neighborhood and beach. I have an aunt and uncle who live there so I'm able to visit most trips. Here's a few of my favorite pictures from two different days at the beach, one with my aunt, and one with a college friend. I didn't edit any of the pictures, I only straightened them (except the last one.) The last one with A's silhouette I edited because I had trouble with the lighting and the contrast.

A and I bought sandwiches for lunch at Gelson's Market in Laguna Beach and brought them down to the beach to eat. They were such good sandwiches, I'd recommend going there if you're in the area.

I love how all my pictures turned out, especially considering I took all of these on my phone. What's someplace you like to relax?
