November 14, 2014 – We talked to a few inlanders who told us about a little place where you can literally camp on the beach, and its not crowded.  We took their advice, rented a car, and drove north to Jamala Beach:

Literally the most amazing place I have ever seen.  The cute general store has absolutely everything you need, even morning mimosas!

 

The last weekend, we said goodbye to farm, and drove back to LA.  On the way back we stopped at some local flower farms and wholesalers.

Driving south we were able to go through Malibu and visit a local park.

On our last day in LA, we did make it all the way up to the Hollywood Sign, a lot bigger than you think it is!
