Driving in the Sun, Looking out for Number One

The Real Housewives of Orange County; Laguna Beach and The O.C.= my Orange County Obsession.  So when the boy and I had the opportunity to stop off in Newport and Laguna Beach on the drive from Beverly Hills to San Diego, I couldn't resist.  And wow were they both beautiful ocean-front cities!

*Last Saturday night the boy and I walked by the celebrity hot spot Katsuya Sushi , which was overflowing with paparazzi and gawking onlookers.  Not seeing what the commotion was about, I asked a camera man who was inside and he suspiciously told me that he didn't know.  It wasn't until the next day that I read that the lovely man eater Kristin Cavallari was inside dining with her boyfriend! Darn, my chance at a celebrity sighting ruined by my impatience! We have reservations there tonight so I am hoping one (or all!) of the Real Housewives will be wining and dining inside so I can bring out my stalker-razzi personality!

Before arriving in San Diego, we visited La Jolla, where Dr. Seuss wrote one of my favourite books How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  (Although I'm not sure that he got the inspiration from his surroundings as La Jolla was a beautiful sunny lazy town.) We spent a few hours at the Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla, where a pile of discarded beach toys passed as art (sometimes I don't understand modern art!)

Quebecois! Even driving like a Quebecer!
