Just one more pic at day’s end
then it’s back to cold & dark for me….
A November day in Laguna Beach…..
My collection of photos is very slim from this day in Laguna, so you’ll have to take my word for it ~ Laguna would be a great vacation destination. Rent an apartment or hotel room for days on end. You won’t be disappointed: art, ocean, hiking, kayaking, dining, shopping & fantastic people watching!
