  • 3 Ways to Make Your Investment in California State Parks More Affordable

    Michele Whiteaker
    29 Jul 2014 | 8:42 am
    You know I’m a park lover, so I’m happy to pay $195/year for my California State Parks Surf Explorer Annual Pass. If you think your taxes should cover the parks, then I’ll never convince you that they are worth paying to enter. We can agree to disagree. The truth is that it costs money to staff with rangers, lifeguards, and maintenance crews. It costs money to recover from years of state budget cuts. It costs money to protect a place for the public to enjoy. Even if I NEVER went inside a California State Park this year — I’d be happy to pay my 54 cents/day for…
  • Moro Beach at Crystal Cove State Park

    Michele Whiteaker
    27 Jul 2014 | 11:48 pm
    Moro Beach is very confusing with all its names: El Moro, Moro Cove, or El Moro Canyon. The signage seems to indicate that they’ve decided on Moro Canyon Area – as a way to describe the beach, canyon, and hiking/biking trails. Whatever you want to call it, you enter near El Morro Elementary School off Pacific Coast Highway just north of Laguna Beach. And, yes, I spelled the name of the school correctly. See how confusing it can get? Directions to Moro Beach at Crystal Cove State Park: Get to Moro Beach through the southernmost entrance to Crystal Cove State Park.  From Pacific…
  • 15+ Stroller-Friendly Walks around Lakes in OC

    21 Jul 2014 | 7:39 am
    It’s relatively easy to map walking routes for stroller walks around lakes in OC, if you have the right tools. I create my own personal routes on MapMyWalk.com to learn distances. I can set the app to map my walk as I’m walking OR I can select routes ahead of time and keep them in my own personal library.  I don’t even have to have a SmartPhone to do this, I can sign in to the website and map walks with markers while sitting at my desktop. Go to “Create Route” and type in the park you want to map A “Distance” window will pop up on the map.

  • Point Lobos State Natural Preserve in Monterey

    Point Lobos State Natural Preserve in Monterey is a scenic wonder full of sea life, hiking trails, a cultural museum, and grand views of the Pacific. Trails are totally manageable for families, but most trails aren’t stroller-friendly because it’s rocky. As you hike, you’ll have peek-a-boo views of coves and then come upon full views. Check all the rocky outcroppings below you to see if you can spot any wildlife. We saw these seals on this rock and there was an egret and Great Blue Heron nearby floating on driftwood in a thick kelp bed. This Old Veteran cypress is oft…
