Adventures / California / Favorite Things

On our annual camping/family reunion trip up the coast, we took a little time to visit Summerland, California. Our destination was Red Kettle Coffee Shop and while we were there, we found a nice little secret beach. Such a cute coffee shop and some good coffee. I feel so absolutely lucky to live in California. I wish I lived closer to the coast but that’s okay, it’s a freeway ride away. I especially love the […]
