The day was magical.
We started out here. It’s a place so stunning, photos don’t do it justice. It’s the type of sanctuary you almost wish was a secret.
There was brunch, al fresco, in afternoon sunshine. There were mimosas and waffles doused with syrup and berries. There were Easter baskets and chocolate peanut butter eggs, plush ducks for the boys and real ducks swimming in a nearby pond. There were dogs running around off-leash because this is a dog and child-friendly restaurant. My type of place.
After brunch, we cruised through the canyons of Malibu and ended up on Carbon Beach, where we plunked down with the kids on a pristine swath of sand dotted with multi-million dollar properties. The beach is actually nicknamed “Billionaire’s Beach” because you obviously have to be one to own property on it. But lucky for us, the coastline is open to the public and you don’t have to be rich to hang out in the sun for the day.
All it takes is a few water guns, bare feet, crashing ocean waves and beach toys to make these boys blissed out.
