Awake to the sound of waves crashing on shore and seagulls calling. Your white water view indicates a swell is coming. Grab a coffee and a breakfast sandwich at Martha’s before you cross the cool morning sand looking for the best spot to paddle out. Feel the sun on your back as the day begins to warm up. Spend a few hours playing in the surf, releasing all the stress from the week. Come home, rinse the sand off your toes and hop on a bike to cruise The Strand. Return to your favorite beach chair and settle under an umbrella. You anticipate a full house tonight, so a quick trip to the Green Store is in order to make sure you have all you need. Welcome friends to the top floor for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Step up to the roof deck, put dinner on the grill as you watch the sun set between the piers. You just had the perfect Hermosa Beach day. Living the dream is most certainly within reach.
