San Clemente - Greetings from California - Travel Blog - Natalie Grinnel

Alright, you caught me.  This isn’t travel for me, because I live here.  But, up until 2 years ago, I didn’t even know this little beach town existed.  Which is why I thought it was important to show you a little glimpse of the town I currently pay rent in (not the place I call home, for home will always be San Francisco).  You can follow my adventures in San Clemente by following #thebeachlife on my Instagram.

The following photos are less than a block from my front door…

A few steps from my house, before the beach, is a gorgeous park over looking the sea.

Other days, it's quite gorgeous.  Last week I saw a dolphin on my morning run.

Foggy mornings usually clear up early afternoon, and by the evening we have the most beautiful sunsets.

If you take the beach trail from our local beach about a mile, you reach Downtown San Clemente:

And, don’t worry.  If you feel the need for a crowded beach, Laguna Beach is just a few miles away.

Musical motivation for the day: Bastille – Pompeii (Live in Paris!!!)  You can skip the ad after 5 seconds.  They are amazing.  I’m actually hoping to see them in Europe while I’m there in 2 months!
