Yosemite National Park Day 3 – Mirror Lake

Our third and final day in Yosemite was a short one as we had a 6 hour drive home. So this post is going to be a lot shorter than my previous two. We knew we would only have a few hours in the park which is why we packed so much in to the first 2 days. If you haven’t already, you can read about Day 1 (Yosemite Valley, Vernal Falls and Tunnel View) here, and Day 2 (Bridalveil Falls, Tioga Pass and Glacier Point) here.

A Week By The Coast At Huntington Beach

Apologies it has been a little quiet over here the past few weeks, we’ve been busy with a few trips that I now need to write up. While we are managing to travel quite a lot while we are in California, we tend to fit in lots of short 2/3 day trips making the most of the weekends. It was about time we had a ‘proper’ holiday, taking a whole week off to relax, so when we had visitors in the middle of August we decided to book a cottage at the coast for a week.
