The One with Pepperdine and Malibu


Monday, January 17, 2011

Chris had the day off of school today so we decided to head up north and check out Pepperdine and Malibu!
We passed through downtown LA on our way. Always a fun sight to see. Still surreal to me that we live in LA.

Wikipedia says Pepperdine was voted #1 most beautiful campus in 2006. I believe it. You'll see. Keep scrolling.

We found some visitor parking, got out, then strolled around.

I'm a fan of textures and vine covered things.

Beautiful textural tree bark.

Here is why I think the campus is voted the most beautiful campus - the views!:

Wouldn't it be cool to live in these dorms?

And have DEER RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW?!

We saw a sign that said "deer crossing" and we're like, no way, and then two seconds later we saw these deer! Funny.

Even though school was out, the bookstore and cafeteria were open so we went in and got some snacks and the employees ogled over Fox. Everyone calls him a little man. It's true. He looks like a little man.

College life is so much fun.

After touring through Pepperdine we kept driving north along the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and tried to find some good views of the ocean. Fox started crying so we pulled over and I snapped some photos.

Then we drove up into the hills and saw these amazing views:

Next we tried to find a beach. Can't go to Malibu without hitting up at least one beach!

Success!

Self-family photos are getting rather tricky :)

Beaches are pretty.

The houses up in the hills and down by the ocean are ginormous. Must be nice :)

We headed back to the car.

And ate lunch at McDonalds. We're classy like that.

We were thiiiiis close to stopping at the Getty Villa on our way home, but the line was really long and Fox was starting to get restless so we decided we'll go a different day. So close yet so far!

Fun day!
