Magical Day at La Jolla Beach

I use the word magical a lot… but so many places are just so amazing that it’s the perfect adjective for them. North of San Diego in La Jolla, there’s a fancy beach town with cliffs and walkways through gorgeous neighborhoods.

6 rad things we learned on our trip to China
