Labor day weekend…San Clemente

I  spent Labor day weekend in the small quaint beach  town of San Clemente. I like the simple and easy life style of this place. I would love to have a big Victorian house by the sea, and own a beautiful apothecary shop full of wonderful smells , lotions and herbs. I wore a simple black dress and vintage 1970’s  hat to the beach which made me feel so very classic chic.  A wonderful place to ponder, wander and simply dream…

 have a wonderful week


San Clemente part 3, Dining Alfresco

I left the guys at the beach while I went to see if I could find a quaint place to dine outside and enjoy the very cool scenery. ( Darrill and Leo like to  dine at the local pizza hut ). 


I found this very cute place called La Galette Creperie,  FRENCH in the middle of  San Clemente beach, how simply perfect !



I sat down at a little pink table with white chairs…



 and they bought me a menu…



I enjoyed looking at the very original  menu.



Croque Madam, a classic favorite with a hint of nutmeg and the price was right as the menu said cash only.



The view was very nice , but I felt like I was  sitting on the edge of the sidewalk , I enjoyed  watching the people passing by…



a simple crepe …but it was so very tasty…



I would say this crepe was  very good, and the service was okay,  but  I am looking forward to coming back and trying one of the fruit crepes… 

I hope everyone has a simply relaxing  weekend, and  Happy Earth day ! 

Shopping at San Clemente beach..


A very warm and fun weekend at San Clemente Beach ,  a beautiful Mediterranean beach town in Orange County. Darrill loves this beach and it’s pretty close to our house, so as soon as the weather gets hot here  in the canyon hills, we head to the beach to beat the heat.  We stay at the Hampton Inn and we love the bedding and the great continental breakfast. But first thing first, Mother’s day is coming up and  I wanted to do a little shopping. The best place for shopping at San Clemente is Del Mar street, and at the end of the street is the pier, and the parking is free, how simply perfect…

This looked like a cute shop…Villa Cucina home and kitchen.

I loved the color of this very fun shop called Jumpin Jack Cards …and the sale assistant was very helpful and give me some very interesting information about these two stores and the website address.

I loved the color of this very fun new shop called Jumpin Jack Cards and it’s other shop called  California Cove Gourmet, at 155 Avenida Del Mar st. Here is the website to both stores.

California Cove Designs focuses on beautiful cruelty-free creations.

effort to make the world a better place.”

“The soaps made here do not hurt the environment, and they are
really beautiful.  We believe that surrounding one’s self in beauty
promotes productivity and kindness.”


 I love earthy delights and I found this very earthy shop  called “The Humble Abode at 228 Avenida Del Mar…

Is this bike  cute  ?  Yes ! I love the color and how old and rustic it looks. I knew I would love this shop.

as I walked in I saw the perfect color  creams candles all neat in a row,  with some wonderful  planters with a touch of green moss…

This  boutique is  filled with fresh treats, garden blooms, and one-of-a-kind gifts. As I  walked onto the  back
courtyard, I found more one of a kind garden  treasures.


A great day of shopping ! I had to call Tanya and tell her of this great street with all theses beautiful shops, and of course what I wanted for Mother’s Day,  next post dinning Alfresco  by the spanish village by the sea …

Hope everyone has a great week !
