This week I decided to have a mini getaway
take the train down to San Diego to visit my daughter.
It was so much more fun than I even imagined.
Even though our train station is only
ten minutes from our house
it had been years since our kids were little
the boys were completely intrigued with trains
that I have been on one.
I myself have always loved train travel.
When I went to study International Business at NYU
I took one all across country by myself.
it was a short ride down south.
I upgraded to business class
enjoyed every minute of my travel!
The seats were large with expansive room between.
My car was so empty
it provided the perfect opportunity
to finish my makeup and accessorize
while having my coffee and being treated to most spectacular views!
I said this on instagram as well
but if you ever find yourself in South Orange County California
I highly recommend taking Amtraks Surfliner down to San Diego.
Sometimes the train seems like it truly just out of the surf line.
This train has double decks
so the views are from a perspective you rarely have access to!
Long washes of beaches
are broken up with beautiful beach towns
like San Clemente.
Being November the beaches
are pretty much empty
except various spots populated by surfers braving the cold waters.
Ellis picked me up in Solana Beach
the closest stop to our destination of
picturesque La Jolla!
As soon as we arrived
we parked along the cliffs
and were off in search of a brunch with a view!
We were directed to La Valencia
and made our way to the top.
Little did we know at the time
we had stumbled into the iconic
which has been an iconic part of La Jolla
I told Ellis I always head to a gorgeous hotel
to ask the concierge for what I was looking for.
It was another beautiful hotel concierge
that actually directed us to La Valencia.
It was an amazing brunch
with mimosas and great conversations!
I was so impressed with the property
I think I might need to go back
for a longer stay!
We walked all the beautiful main streets of La Jolla
taking in the beautiful sights
as well as being on a quest
to find the perfect invitations
for the up coming engagement party!
We were wonderfully successful in the Kate Spade Store.
The time flew by
and a quick bite was had
before it was time to catch my train once again!
But we were ever so happy with our quaint little find
with yet another perfect view!
I am always All about the View!
I am just so excited about train travel now!
I can't wait to plan my next day excursion!
It was not only so simple and easy
no security of traffic to deal with ...
The views were so incredible
the journey truly was a destination!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
