It's become tradition to take a few days off for my birthday and use it as an opportunity to go on a short vacation trip. This year, Philip and I decided to travel north to California's Central Coast. We first stopped by Santa Barbara for some shopping and I got myself a pretty birthday dress that ended up being so much fun to wear, thanks to the warm temperature and constant ocean breeze.
Philip had the whole birthday trip planned out. Our first visit was Hearst Castle. This place was truly amazing. There were breathtaking views at every corner. I felt like I was visiting a European castle except I was looking over the Pacific Ocean. The next stop was a peaceful vineyard in San Luis Obispo where we took our time with each tasting. We ended the day with a dinner at Morro Bay that included Oysters, Crab Cakes, Clam Chowder and Filet Mignon. Oh, and we also shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc that we bought from the vineyard.
The day was perfect but the trip wasn't over yet. We had plans to go to the beach at 5 in the morning the next day. We wanted to beat the sunlight and take scenic photos of the coast (yes, we're obsessed with taking photos). Unbeknownst to me, we were really there to capture a moment I'll never forget.
