Anniversary Trip | Hotel Vista Del Mar | Catalina, CA

{BELOW LEFT} We absolutely LOVED our hotel! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! {BELOW RIGHT} Where we ate breakfast each morning, enjoying the view and ocean breeze!

{ABOVE RIGHT} Yup, fire place in our room…which means I ran the air conditioning and curled up in front of this baby *wink* {BELOW LEFT} Champagne waiting for us to celebrate! Cheers!

{BELOW LEFT} We ate here the last time we were on the island and made sure to go back! Good, classic Italian!

{BELOW RIGHT}  The milk & cookies that the hotel had out every night. We set our alarms on our phones, we were litterally out there seconds after they’d appear. SO GOOD!!!

{BELOW LEFT} Discanso Beach, enjoyed our “private beach” time with drinks…and screaming kids running on my towel…(personal pet peeve…)

{BELOW} We HAD to get seafood! Fish & chips is an ultimate classic.

{BELOW} Our hotel lobby in the day and at night, as soon as you opened your door you felt the ocean air – so refreshing!

{BELOW RIGHT} This steak house was directly underneath our hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our filet and seafood kabob!

{BELOW} Succulents…because I love them. We went exploring and decided go to the Wrigley Memorial & Botanical Gardens.

{BELOW} On our way we discovered a maze. Probably for Boy Scouts…but Andy humored me by helping me complete it. We each started at one end and met in the middle. Turns out it was really only path…made to look confusing. I was still entertained.

{BELOW} I was quite proud that we walked instead of bicycle, golf cart, segway or trolley ;) Not many others shared our enthusiasm for the hike.

{ABOVE LEFT} The complete outside view of our hotel, it was AWESOME! {ABOVE RIGHT} This seagull was giving me the stink eye…

{BELOW} Arriving back in Dana Point to a gorgeous sunset!
