This past weekend my husband (Tracy) and I went out searching for some Christmas spirit. We live in N San Diego county now – but we used to live in Capistrano Beach in S. OC and loved it. We chose to go back there and re-visit some of our favorite holiday places. Starting in Newport Beach at Fashion Island – Here is their tree – Had to be at least 50 ft!

We then worked our way down PCH stopping in Laguna Beach then Laguna Niguel at the Ritz Carlton. Always a favorite Christmas destination for their beautiful lights, vintage dressed carolers and drinks, but this year was disappointing! The interior was very sparsely decorated for the holidays so we wandered out on the patio to have a drink and were pleasantly surprised by a show of whales at least a mile or more off shore between us and Catalina Island. I kept shooting although all I could see even with my 300mm lens was a water spout and miraculously I caught a bit of tale! : )  Grainy yes but defintiely a tale. Yay!

We finished at Sonnys Pizza in San Clemente and headed home.  Hope you are all enjoying your holiday preparations.
