Sunset Cliffs Natural Park

We spent a couple days in California for a mini-family reunion earlier this month. Of course no visit to California is ever complete without seeing either the ocean or Disneyland, both of which we sadly lack in Arizona. We spent our first full day there running around Disneyland and eating churros. It was my sister-in-law’s first time there so naturally she was forced onto every ride.

On our second day in California, we ticked off the other must-see requirement on our list: the ocean. Sunset Cliffs Natural Park is rated as one best places in San Diego to see that blue-liquidy-thing we don’t have in Arizona. We understand why:
