Beach Appreciation

Friday, July 15, 2016

Having lived in Southern California for so long, I have never truly appreciated the fact that I live quite close to the beach - a privilege that most people do not get to experience living away from a body of water. Cindy and I decided that it was a perfect day to go to the beach and unwind from our daily routines.

We first stopped by Arirang Market to get some Korean snacks as we opted to not eat breakfast so that we can have a picnic at the beach. We grabbed chips, rice snacks, ramen noodles (I brought a thermo of hot water with me along with water to stay hydrated), bimbap and some sides (seaweed, sweet fish cakes, cuttlefish, and onions). Afterwards we went to Paris Baguette to get sandwiches and soft bread as our main entree. I got the imitation crab sandwich (basically sushi in a sandwich) and sweet potato bread. Our food was absolutely filling and delicious and it was such an amazing day to go to the beach.

Although we had an umbrella to keep ourselves shaded from the sun, we did end up coming home sun burnt. PSA: Always apply sunblock regardless of the weather every 1-2 hours and after you get out of the water. Let the sunblock set on your skin for 15-30 minutes before going out again.

Have you guys been going out to the beach as of late? Do let me know in the comments down below!
