Favorite Memories from California

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing with you a few of my favorite photos that I shot during my most recent visit to SoCal.  It is no surprise that I absolutely love everything about Southern California: the weather, the plant life, and of course the sights. While visiting, I spent time in San Diego and travelled to Los Angeles for a few days. Both cities are so different and have so many interesting things to offer. Where is your favorite place to travel?
I explored Old Town (San Diego, CA) for the first time this following trip. If you have not heard of it, it's a state historical park with a variety of Mexican specialities. I personally enjoyed the shopping and loved the Day of the Dead skulls. These ones above are hand painted by an artist from Mexico.

This looks like such a random photo but I love the way it turned out. The tree was honestly so cool! The trunk looked to be a smooth surface from afar. However, once you touch it and look from beneath you can see that it really has an interesting texture.
