As I prepare for my first full week of school, I am doing an honorary throwback to one of my favorite moments of the summer. This is by far the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen and I am so glad that I was able to share it with @beingperfectisoverrated ! I’ll be back home again soon, California! Washington has nothing on you! #nofilter #sun #sand #surf #waves #beach #ocean #water #sunlight #sunset #clouds #lighthouse #silhouette #pacific #pacificocean #westcoast #horizon #SantaCruz #california #beautiful #bayarea #vacation #nature #staycation #reflection #throwback #summer #summer2014 #GoodbyeSummer #HomeSweetHome (at Twin Lakes Park)
