San Diego, CA

I had a work trip in San Diego again, this time Russ got to come with! It was so fun to have him there :) What a great way to start out spring! We flew in around early evening and walked around Old Town San Diego. We had fish tacos and sat out on a patio and ate one of my favorite desserts- Creme Brulee. Yum. Russ has a good friend that lives in Northern California and he and his cute wife drove down to hang out with us for the weekend. The next day Russ and his friend woke up early to go surfing. They came back mid morning, we had breakfast and started our day! We went to a dog park (One of my favorite places) and walked around Sea Port Village.
I have a really good gift. I have a gift of going on vacation somewhere warm and having the weather turn to crazy cold in no time. It was in the high 70's-80's and we show up and it goes to 50's-60's. But we made the best of it! We walked around the USS Midway
If you havent been to Sea Port Village, you have to go and see this big statue. Its adorable.
That night we went to dinner at the Burger Lounge. I wish we had one of those in SLC.
Sunset Cliffs to watch the sunset. It was beautiful!
The Cliff's
I wish we lived by an ocean. It makes us pretty happy.
The next day, we took a ferry over to Coronado Island. It is so beautiful over there! I couldnt believe it. We had yummy pizza on the pier with the most delicious garlic knots ever. Why do Carbs have to be so good? I think I could live on bread. and Pizza.
After lunch we rented a tandem bike. Holy smokes that was fun. We rode around the island and to the beach. Look at this cool sand castle.
Riding a tandem bike really is harder than it looks. It is a team activity for sure. There were tons and tons of laughs, but there were tons and tons of "RUSSELL!" He was in the lead taking charge and if you havent been on a tandem bike, if the person in front stops, and the person in back is peddling away, the person in back automatically goes to a screeching halt! I think the pedals slammed into the back of my heels a thousands times. We also hit a wall of rocks that I couldnt see. We rode to a nice little park that had a view of the city :)
I just love the feel of that island. There were people out and about walking their dogs, flying kites, having picnics and a live band in the middle of town. Loved it! We got back to down town San Diego and walked around a bit. I had to work a few hours that night so we were trying to enjoy the sun while we had it!
I went to work for a couple hours and we made it out just in time to drive up to a pretty ledge to watch the sunset.
Russ takes a lot of pictures. By now I was done.
Now that I am looking through all our pictures, they are basically all of the beach. Every picture that I posted look the same. But dont worry, there are a few more. The next day was by far the prettiest and warmest day...of course I was inside working the whole time. But Russ's friends had gone home by then so Russ went surfing alone. He took a break at lunch and came and picked me up for some Mexican food in old Town. He went back surfing, I went back working. Someone has to bring home the bacon!! We had a theme here..and that was 'watch the set'.
That night we went down to the gas lamp district. Thats when the whole "crows feet" story went down. Jerk. And that is our vacation in a very repetitive nutshell. Ill leave you with pictures of a sexy surfer instead of more sunset pictures :)


  1. I love all your pictures of the ocean! Plus you look so pretty! I don't see any crows feet! :)

  2. I LOVE the picture of you in the sunset! You're gorgeous and you DON'T have crows feet. You look amazing. I on the other hand spend every day in the sun and have sun spots and crows feet... getting old sucks. Can't wait to see you in June!
