Less than 24 hours in one of your favorite places? No problem. Step 1: rent an Airbnb with access to bikes AND a 25-yard pool. Step 2: Use it all. Step 3: Dip your toes in the Pacific and pack your bags for home. Check, check, check!

We spent the last night of our CA trip in March in Newport Beach, partly because we love it and partly because of the proximity to the airport. Use every minute of vacation, I guess?

As soon as we arrived, we hopped on our bikes and rode to Charlie’s Chili on the pier, a family favorite. It was a little chilly (heh) outside but perfect for a hot dinner and a bike ride. It was our last chance to dine al fresco, complete with all the people-watching we could want.

I made a little video of our boardwalk bike ride, check it out! (Anyone else LOVE this song?!)

Here’s the video link for mobile devices.

The next morning we got up bright and early and hit the pool for a morning workout before a day of travelling. After I snuggled the bougs on the patio for a while, obvs.

We didn’t have a kitchen in our Airbnb so we hunted down some coffee and walked to the beach.

One last glance at the patio, we left our twizzlers and peanut butter with the hosts because we had to make room for Josh’s cacti collection from Joshua Tree. Srsly.

Aaaaand that’s that! (Except for the cancelled flight and “bonus” night in Dallas, but we all know how those stories go) Thanks for letting me share some stories from our CA trip, guys!
