One of my favorite things about Southern California is how you can go to the beach no matter what season it is. Even if it is a little breezy, there's nothing like that tiny bit of sunlight kissing your skin through the clouds.
Growing up near the Bay Area I never saw beach days. My 12 years of growing up there, I probably went to the beach four times. (Hard to believe because I'm at the beach 24/7 now)
I remember watching my first surf movie with my dad when I was about six years old and instantly fell in love with the ocean.
The way it can calm your nerves when you're just sitting on the sand or even in the water, listening to the waves crash. Simple yet so peaceful. This is one of the main reasons why I moved to Southern California six years ago. I wanted to be closer to my soulmate (literally). The ocean is where I get a majority of my inspiration from... Which is why I finally got a dainty wave tattoo on the side of my wrist, because no matter where I go- the ocean will be with me.
