It has been really hot here over the last week. We don't usually have weather in the low 100's in mid September. We decided to take a break and spend the day at the beach.
Our favorite beach spot is Crystal Cove Beach. It's located between Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. It is a California State Park and has tide pools with a lot to see. Farther down the beach you will find smooth sand and plenty of space for surfing, body boarding, swimming or wave chasing.
