Fourth of July Trip

Bixby Bridge

It had been over 4 years since Scott and I took a vacation together so we decided to take a 4 day trip to the Bay Area over the Fourth of July holiday. We had only been there once before in 2007 and wanted to explore the area more while also checking out Santa Cruz along the way and take the scenic drive down the Pacific Coast highway. We stayed at the Hotel Durant in Berkeley which while being a cute little hotel also had cruelty free toiletries which I was super excited to discover. It was a really nice but short trip and made me anxious to take a longer vacation soon.
