One day as we were hanging out at the beach, Alex and I decided to explore and be adventurous. Sadly for me, I didn't find out how adventurous she was until we ended up at this cliff with lava rock all over it, that only had a tiny pathway you had to climb to reach the top...and she had this great idea to just climb to the top! I'm not one for heights nor rock climbing so to get me to go up was a big deal! All the way up I was really shaky and nervous especially with carrying a bag full of essentials and my camera which made me feel unbalanced, but I'm so glad Alex talked me into climbing up! The view was breath taking, one I know I won't experience at our So-Cal beaches! From the top we were able to see the entire beach, and the color of the water was beautiful. There wasn't a cloud in the sky which made us very happy for taking clear photos! I'm so glad I gave it a try, I certainly don't think I'll ever be as brave and adventurous as I'd like to be, but this tiny experience was definitely a start! And moments like these are what get us to where we want or need to be.
