My Favorite Place

Yesterday, Ron and I were able to get to my favorite place Alamitos Bay in Long Beach, CA.  I first discovered this place when I was looking for a reception site for our wedding over four years ago.  I have lived in So Cal all my life and never heard of this bay. After I first went there and saw the beauty and calm environment I was like, "This is the place for our reception!"  Ron and I were so excited!

Some months later, we had our wonderful reception there.  This must be one of  the best keep secrets in all of So Cal.  It is so quiet, has a beautiful bay, ocean views and the best sunsets.  AW WWW!

So, yesterday Ron and I really enjoyed the calm and peaceful afternoon.  Plus we sat for a while in front of the wedding day restaurant  and reflected over that fabulous day. What a day that was! 

There are a few restaurants and shops around but it is never too crowded or busy. I usually just park my car right in front and kick back and exhale!  Of course, the weekends are little busier but the walk ways are open to casually stroll with your honey or alone.

Enjoy the pictures!

  6. Such beautiful photos ... it brought me right back to my time spent in Long Beach, California. I lived there for 11 years when I was much younger ... 1969 - 1980, and I sure do miss the area. Thanks for sharing!
