Hawaiian Cheeseburgers and An After-Dinner Walk in Laguna Beach
Earlier this week, after finishing our work for the day, Aaron and I realized that we had been so busy we never stopped to eat. This meant we had effectively all of our daily calorie budget remaining so we took advantage of it and decided to try a place called Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks. They always seemed busy during the dinner rush and most of the meals ranged between 1,500 and 2,000 calories. We both ordered some Hawaiian-style cheeseburger – I can’t recall the exact name – that had pineapple and teriyaki on it. It was delicious; definitely worth the nutritional sacrifice.
Afterwards, we stopped in for a few minutes at our stylist’s salon to get our hair trimmed before our next appointment then picked up coffee at Starbucks.
On the way home, we decided to take a walk to stretch our legs and clear our heads before heading back to tackle our remaining task list. We drove ten minutes down the road to Laguna Beach. We stopped the car at one of the parks we had not, yet, explored even during our numerous trips to California over the past few years. It turned out to be a great decision. The sun was setting and the scene was spectacular.
There was this door that had one of the most beautiful paint colors we had ever seen. We kept staring at it and taking pictures. I’m sure people wondered why we found it so fascinating but … look at it! It’s magical!
There were bunny rabbits on the path. People had brought hammocks to string up between palm trees and watch the water. Couples were walking together. One family was taking pictures, including their golden retriever, in what looked like a scene out of a Hallmark commercial. As we walked, and talked, we went over our plans. We are both in total agreement about how we want the next 25+ years of our life to look, which makes strategizing a lot easier.
I can see why a person would collect real estate here and not sell it regardless of valuation, passing it on to future generations.
