Beaches - Crystal Cove

Beaches – Crystal Cove

Orange County’s coastline has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  Serving as the northern gateway of our 42 miles of beaches is Seal Beach with San Clemente being the southern gateway.. There are many, many beaches along this 42 mile stretch to enjoy.  The little plum teapot will be pouring tea for you at a few of my most favorite ones.  I love the ocean and visit these nearby beaches often. 

Experiencing the magic of “Crystal Cove” as it existed in the 1930’s is great fun. The cottages have been historically restored and are available for vacation rentals through our CA. State Parks (if you should be lucky enough to secure a reservation).
Today, the little plum teapot is pouring Söderblandning from the Tea Centre in Stockholm while we enjoy the view from the bluff above Crystal Cove Beach and The Historic District.  This tea is one of my “go to” teas.  It is a pleasant blend of China and Sri Lanka black teas with tropical fruits and flowers. 
Today’s chocolate is a Bissingers  Fleur de Sel  & Kreta Olive Oil Truffle.   
Oh, my!  It’s a good thing I tucked in a Godiva Pumpkin Spice Truffle too as look who else found Crystal Cove today!

*Would you like an adventure now
Or shall we have our tea first?*

Ohhh... Another ATAA person who likes Peter Pan, and Bissinger's chocolates!
I enjoyed seeing your outing to Crystal Cove Beach with the Traveling Teapot. What a beautiful setting for tea and chocolates!

Oh how fun! I will be visiting the Crystal Cove beach and staying in one of the old cabins this coming January. I will not have the traveling teapot with me then, because it isn't my month, but I will take the little GREEN teapot and we will raise a cuppa to you!

Oh I would love to stay in one of those cottages and have chocolates and a special guest. That guest has travel far to join you at the beach. How special to honor him and the ones that love him. What a special place to celebrate the day and tea with the little plum teapot.
