nothin’ comes close to the golden coast.

7 Jul

The last few days have been relaxing and fun – taking full advantage of lazy days before law school. Yesterday’s highlight was driving down to Malibu for a 5 mile run along PCH and whipping up some bomb salad with quinoa and Mmm sauce thanks to Healthy Tipping Point. My parents were surprised that I finally made something that was actually edible. I’m not sure my brother would agree with them, but that’s a different story.

I spent today in the Palos Verdes/San Pedro area visiting a college friend, Krisse, who is recovering from ACL surgery she had just over a week ago. I met my friend Lily in Brentwood and we made the trek down – and Krisse gave us the tour of all the Pedro hotspots. (I’m still having trouble pronouncing San Pedro the “American” way of San Pee-dro. The last nine months have made it hard for me to not pronounce it the Spanish way of Ped-row…but that’s beside the point).

Here’s some pictures from my day in San Pedro:

Then we ventured up the coast to Redondo Beach…for some frozen yogurt at Krisse’s favorite place: Penguin’s!

a childhood classic in Redondo Beach!

red velvet cake + pecans.

It’s been a great day catching up with my friends for the first time since I saw both of them in Spain as well as getting acquainted with a part of LA I didn’t really know before!

What’s everyone’s favorite yogurt place? What do you love about it?

    What I couldn’t give for soft serve coconut milk yogurt! Dairy lover would switch for sure! My parents are now obsessed with the way.too.expensive kind you get at whole foods. My fav for sure!

      coconut milk yogurt?!? not sure i’ve ever had it, but it sounds amazing. I’m a sucker for basically any kind of fro-yo, but I love the gimmick of pouring your own and selecting your own toppings.
