A Gorgeous Day at California’s Crystal Cove

Oh, what a glorious California day at Crystal Cove!
It's just north of Laguna Beach in Orange County.
With temps in the low 80's, it was a perfect family beach day.

Nieces waded in the cool water.
Notice that house in the background?

It's the house that was used in the filming of the 1988 movie,
"Beaches" with Bette Midler & Barbara Hershey.
How cool is that?

My nephew looked for signs of tidal pool life,
but unfortunately, we timed our visit at high tide.
