san diego, day one3:52:00 PM
Hello San Diego!
So, here's the thing...I was all ready for fall. I was embracing the (very slightly) colder temperatures, I was starting to get excited about fall fashion, and I was even beginning to get a taste for pumpkin spice again.
And then I went through our San Diego photos.
Summer, come back to me!!! I'm not ready to let go of you yet!
Anyway, we landed in San Diego early Thursday morning to a completely gray sky. In need of some food, we headed to San Diego's old town to wander around while the weather sorted itself out.
The Old Town is considered to be the 'birthplace' of California. It was here that the fist permanent Spanish settlement lived in the late 1700s.
...and drink....we were on vacation, ok???
After stuffing ourselves, we walked around the Old Town a little more, enjoying the slightly touristy attraction.
We jumped right into the waves. I can't even describe to you how good it felt. It had been soooo long since I was in the ocean! We finally emerged, salty and wet, but so happy.
We spent a little more time hanging out, reading and chatting as the waves rolled by. Oh, and getting HORRIBLY SUNBURNED. But we're trying to forget that part.
I got some selfies in (v. important).
We finally decided on Joe Manana's a teeny tiny little taco joint with cheap drinks and a gorgeous back patio.
After dinner, we took a short walk through the downtown. There was a food bazaar the night we arrived, so we wandered through it, wishing we weren't so stuffed! We made mental notes of things we wanted to eat later and made our way home for a quick dip in the hot tub and then bed, sweet, glorious bed.
An amazing first day! Stay tuned for day two, in which we almost ended up in Mexico and met a wombat named Conrad...
