A Quick trip to Orange County California and Catalina Island

So, my wonderful husband surprised me with a short weekend trip to Orange County, California. We left on Thursday and came home yesterday. It was an absolutely wonderful trip - I loved getting away and being able to just spend some time with Matt. The first day we just got settled in at teh Ritz-Carlton hotel, went to Laguna and he showed me the beaches he life guarded as a teen, but I wasn't feeling like taking the camera with me. On Friday, we sailed to Catalina Island and spent the day there and Saturday  - which was very rainy- we went to see Matt's friend Nash along with some neighbors he grew up around in San Juan Capistrano where we also visited the San Juan Capistrano Mission - which is beautiful! He told me about the many times he attended Sunday Mass there as it was his Parrish as a child. The only complaint I have about the trip is that it wasn't long enough and it was pretty cold. ENJOY!
