Q: Did you have hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A: No. I was not nervous one bit.

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: We had massages scheduled for us since we were wanting a relaxing weekend. Suggestions were right up our alley. Fit us great!

San Diego is a coastal dream for surfers, beach bums, + sunbathers with more than 70 miles of glistening beaches. 

Here are some of the photogenic shots that Jasmine + Richard captured on their seaside adventure to this Southern Californian beach haven!
