Honeymoon Moments

Mine and Andy’s honeymoon was short yet magical. We only had a few days after our wedding and before school to take a little trip, but it was so worth it. We drove from Bakersfield, CA to Cambria, CA on a sunny December day. As we started to approach the coast,  the flat farm land of Kern County turned into rolling green hills. Once in Cambria, we relaxed into our little cottage cabin that was nestled in a hilly wooded neighborhood that overlooked the ocean.

After settling in, we took a stroll down the mountainside to Main Street where we browsed through various antique shops and art galleries. The next day, after a café breakfast on the patio, we took a drive along the coast and then experienced an amazing tour of the Hearst Castle. We then concluded our day by observing Elephant Seals on the beach.

On our last day in Cambria we took our time saying goodbye to the friendly neighborhood cat while we watched the New Year’s Parade. On our way back to Bakersfield, we stopped by Jack Creek Farms where we sampled apple cider, honey, and delicious homemade popsicles. It was so nice to just relax for a few days and take the time to soak in the beauty of the world.
