For the first time in my life, ocean water met my toes yesterday.
It's been a fabulous vacation. All we did was eat and sight-see and nap and what more could I ask for?
Friday night we had dinner at Caffe Bella and I ordered something I couldn't pronounce and it was delicious. Saturday we visited Seaport Village and Coronado, then ate sushi in the Gaslamp Quarter that night. The plates were passed around our table to share rapid fire and it was incredible.
Sunday we headed out to the Hillcrest Farmer's Market. I wish we had these amazing vendors where we live. We called a cab to take us to Ocean Beach (thanks to Kelly's recommendation) and it was my favorite part of the trip by far. We walked the entire beach until we came upon Dog Beach, which was definitely one of the happiest places I've ever been in my life. Dozens and dozens- at least a hundred dogs roaming up and down the beach playing, smiling, retrieving frisbees from the water. It was dog heaven.
We came back to the hotel for lunch and then read and napped until dinner. We drove up to La Jolla and saw the seals and sea lions and ate with an ocean view at George's. We walked across the street for gelato (I got caramel praline with banana nut chocolate crunch. Yes.) Then we went to see Moonrise Kingdom. It was fabulous.
This morning we ventured back over to Hillcrest to eat at Hash House a Go Go (holy cow) and now are packing up to head home.
