As I'm sitting here relaxing in my bedroom, a coffee cup size of green tea by my side, for some reason I began thinking of trips I took this summer - one of which was with my family to Huntington Beach. This is my last week of freedom before college starts back with nothing else planned besides reading and watching movies, so reminiscing on past trips taken this summer probably isn't the best thing because I'll be sad wishing I was back there. But I decided to share a little something nonetheless.
Last month in July, my aunt took my siblings and I to Huntington Beach for a day out in the sun paddling kayaks. We rented kayaks through Huntington Harbor Boat Rentals. Providing a selection of kayaks, paddleboards, boat rides, and a stunning location, they did not disappoint.
The waterways are outlined with gorgeous million dollar houses and private docks for the homeowner's boats. Some boats were little tugboats, some were speed boats, and some were as big as ships but they were all as equally fascinating.
My sister and I were always behind everyone as we kept stopping to relax and take in the ambiance of this place. I didn't take a lot of pictures for fear of dropping my camera into the water or getting it wet somehow, so sorry for that!
After kayaking for two hours, we lunched at Olive Garden. I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo and Raspberry Lemonade, and it was already mid-meal until I realized I never took a picture of my food! I never forget to do that! I snapped photos of the desserts though which I find is always better than the main course. We ordered the Amaretto Tiramisu Dolcini, Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake Dolcini, Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake & Caramel Cream Dolcini, and Dark Chocolate Cake to share amongst the six of us. My favorites are the Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake & Caramel Cream Dolcini and Dark Chocolate Cake. I just love the light and creamy textures of the dolcinis.
