A shot of the ocean from the hills where the trails were. Gorgeous.
And another shot further up and into the trails.
And the other direction- the Southern California mountains.
We worked up a serious appetite after all of that hiking so headed down into Laguna for lunch. We found a quaint little mediterranean bistro called GGs.
Tim ordered a veggie burger thing which was awesome and I had a greek salad. Oh, also, we ordered hummus... which I totally had about a 80-20 ratio of eating over Tim. It was SO good. I have a huge love for hummus.
We then soaked up some rays people watching on Laguna Beach and eventually made our way back up on PCH/the Newport coast. That afternoon was VERY relaxing. We weren't really in the mood for another fancy dinner so we went back to our first day favorite (Tim is a new convert): Rutabagorz. I KNOW how many options there are in Southern California, I KNOW. But I am telling you, I absolutely LOVED Rutas when I lived there so going there twice while we were visiting was definitely warranted. And it was low key, which is what we wanted that night.
