At the beginning of this year, I was moved to a Georgia-only territory in an effort to keep me from traveling so much. That has not panned out to this point as I am in the air more than ever these days. However, I love business travel where I get to visit new cities, try amazing local restaurants, and add new places to my Rim Hugger list!
This past week I was in Southern California with a customer doing some work at their factory. Conveniently, my Aunt Barb, Uncle Dave, and cousin Danielle live just 28 miles from my client’s site! It’s so nice to be able to leave work and head to spend time with family rather than a lonely hotel room. We had a fantastic time in San Clemente. Evening bike rides at the beach, dinner overlooking the sunset at the pier, and animated movie relaxation time (even though I fell asleep!).
One morning, Barb and Danielle put up with my crazy East Coast body clock and woke up with me super early for a little trip down to Dana Point, CA. This place was nuts – ultra-rich neighborhood with mansions just stuck into the hillside over looking the beach. Each one had it own style and there was everything from Spanish palaces to giant farmhouses to super modern estates. One house had a huge, circular gym overlooking the beach. The owner had all the windows opened up and was on the elliptical listening to the waves crash!
Our exercise was a little different than the traditional Rim Hugger fare. We walked up and down the beach, climbed on the cliffs on one side (where we found some really neat tide pools filled with fish and crabs!), and ran a ton of stairs! It was a great little workout and a really cool way to experience a new place together. You can see more in the video below and check out #rimhuggerlist on social media!
