Last month, my mom and I traveled to California for a week to tour colleges on the West Coast. As most of my friends know, due to my internships and modeling, I am taking an extra year to finish high school. And I'm really happy I am. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
We first flew to San Diego. Our hotel room had a balcony that overlooked the Pacific Ocean. We would leave the doors open, so the fresh crisp morning air would fill the entire room. Every morning, I woke up early just so I could read a book near the doors. There is truly something special about the calming sound of the ocean.
One morning my mom and I drove to La Jolla Cove. La Jolla Cove is a small beach tucked between sandstone cliffs. We heard about a secret cave, and decided to check it out. The only entrance to the cave led us through a seashell shop. From there, we walked down a steep set of dark stairs that eventually led us to a breathtaking view. There was a beam of sun peeking into the cave from above, and water crashing into a set of rocks below.
Later that afternoon we drove to Los Angeles. During our time in Los Angeles we toured more colleges. I also got to see some of my friends that live in Los Angeles, which was really nice. Although our time in California was short, we had such an amazing time. I already miss California and look forward to visiting again soon.
