fifteenth stop: san diego

I’ve been bugging Mike to take me down to San Diego since I moved to Southern California.  It’s not that far of a drive from LA…and I hadn’t been since I was 8 years old! We finally agreed to head down over Labor Day weekend.  San Diego is gorgeous and we had a great time…until I got food poisoning on our very last night.  It was miserable, so I’ll spare you the details.  We stayed at a hotel in La Jolla and spent our first night walking around the beach and the shops in the downtown area.  On our second day we went to Coronado Island and checked out the famous hotel, and then spent the rest of the afternoon at Balboa Park.  I could have spent an entire week just at Balboa Park alone.  We went to Old Town San Diego for dinner (which was a big mistake…may I caution you to never, EVER eat at Casa de Reyes!!!!!!) and had to call it an early night after I became ill.  I hope to make it back to San Diego in the near future because there was so much to do that we didn’t have time for.
