The Sunken City/ Family Road-Trip

Thursday, July 24, 2014



"In 1929, a landslide in San Pedro, California, caused a neighborhood of exclusive homes to tumble into the ocean. At its peak, the land movement was measured at an astounding 11 inches a day. During the slide, part of the adjoining Point Fermin Park also fell into the ocean. Today, the area is called "Sunken City" by locals, and consists of the broken foundations of houses, abandoned streetcar tracks, buckled sidewalks, and empty streets. The area is now a popular hiking spot. " (Atlas Obscura)

Let me begin with how much fun I've had in the last 2 weeks! I pretty much stayed away from social media (for the most part) Sorry not sorry and it was awesome. My family and I took a 2 week long vacation traveling cross country (New Jersey to California) and we made it to Cali in 2 & 1/2 days!  Seriously, I have no idea how we did it. We never stopped for fast food, so maybe that helped. We did stop to go pee and get gas. We also stayed at hotels. The kids had plenty of snacks, movies and games. I also made travel folders for them filled with lots of activities. It was fun! No one complained! More on that later..

One of mine and Jes's first adventures was the sunken city, and yes I wore a dress! I highly recommend wearing hiking clothes, but we went to West Hollywood after, so I wanted to be cute. As you can tell from the last couple pictures of Jes, it's a little illegal to go in, but nobody listens. I'm glad I'm not prissy, because I did have to get in the dirt to go under that fence, but it was worth it. The view was amazing! If your in Cali I would highly suggest visiting this hidden gem. Visit during the day though, people hang out and party there. We saw a lot of empty bottles and broken glass. I'm pretty sure that's why my brother finds so much sea glass at the nearby beaches.


We found some big rocks in Arizona.....photo op! 
More pictures to come.
