“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” – Henry Thoreau
My eyes were glued the clock. Every minute felt like ten, but finally the time I had been anticipating had come.
It was time to rush home and pack, and get ready for my trip home for the holiday. When I made it to the house, I figured since it’s my last night for 5 days, might as well go catch the sunset.
As I shut the door, I realized I left my keys in the house. Thank god I live right by the beach because I was stranded outside my house for a couple hours
Two hours went by, I finally made it back inside, packed up, and headed to the airport.
It was roughly 9am when I made it to San Diego. I was beyond stoked to be back! The weather was about 80 degrees without a cloud in sight, so you could say it was the perfect day.
I was picked up by Savannah, and we headed back to the house to get ready for our eventful day. We planned on spending the day wrapping up a video project for Aleader Gears we started a few weeks back in Hawaii.

Beaches and Bowls
Our first stop of the day was, of course, to get an acai bowl. An acai bowl a day keeps the doctor away, is what I say!
Afterwards, we made our way to Torrey Pines to capture unique shots with an amazing 360-degree view of La Jolla.
Since I don’t have a drone, we focused on mimicking a drone shot on the edge of the cliff. I think we executed this clip well.
With the sun beaming down on us for an hour or two, we needed to escape the heat, so we headed back to the house to relax for a bit.
A Crowded Sunset
We headed back to La Jolla for round 2 to catch golden hour; the best time of the day. We went out to capture a few more scenes before the sun went down.
My favorite beach in La Jolla was where we planned to go. During the day we noticed a couple local spots we normally visit were a little more crowded than usual.
When we arrived at the beach, there was insane amount of people there. It was almost disappointing in a way because we remember back when we started coming to this beach, the crowds were minimal.
Anyways, we just enjoyed the sunset and the beach atmosphere. Eventually, we returned to the house, packed, and drove a third time to La Jolla for food.
After we ate some bomb tacos, we hit the road.
There’s Plenty to Be Thankful For
Our first stop was Huntington Beach to drop me off at home for the holiday. It felt so great to be back!
After talking with Savannah and my parents, I realized I hadn’t been home since May which was crazy to me. Time definitely does fly by when your busy.
The rest of my trip was filled with seeing relatives for Thanksgiving, watching Stranger Things with my family, and eating at a few of my favorite restaurants around Huntington Beach.
Always thankful when I get to see my family and friends, and I’ll be back in a few weeks for Christmas.
