San Diego Re-Cap

Pixlr (1)I absolutely do not want to go back East. We are currently at the airport in San Diego. Arrived here on Saturday and I have been meaning to make a post since then but just didn't happen. We have been busy pretty much every day but it''s been a lot of fun. 

We left NYC on Saturday morning and the drive down to JFK was absolutely awful as we were hit with a Nor'Easter which brought a lot of wind and rain to the East Coast. Taking off in it was no fun either but eventually we managed to get to San Diego, even without a delay really. Landed in San Diego, headed to our hotel and eventually made our way to Baloboa Park. We didn't realize that there was a Halloween event going on so the park was pretty crowded but we still had a nice lunch at Panama 66 and then checked out the Art Museum afterwards. Stopped at the Gaslamp Quarter to walk around and I bought a shirt at the Hard Rock Hotel. Then headed back to our hotel on Shelter Island.

Sunday we went to the San DIego Zoo in the morning and spent 4 hours there. So many cute animals and lots and lots of walking. :) Afterwards we stopped at Stone Brewing at Liberty Station. I had some delicious mac n cheese and some wine while Mike tried a few of their beer flights. We then headed back to the hotel and went for a swim in the pool before heading out to dinner at Puesto (yummy Mexican). 

Monday we headed to the San Diego Wild Animal/Safari Park north of the city and spent 3.5 hours there wandering around looking at all the cute animals. When we were done there we continued north to Temecula Valley for some wine tasting. Stopped at Mount Palomar, Doffo Winery & Chapin Family Vineyards. Had fun hanging out, wine tasting and drinking some wine outside on their patio area. When we were done we headed back to Shelter Island where our hotel was for some more Mexican at Miguel's Cocina. Delicious. 

And that brings us to today, Tuesday. Slept in a bit and then checked out the Old Point Loma Lighthouse at Cabrillo National Monument. Walked around for a bit and then headed to the Unconditional Surrender Statue. Took some pictures and then headed for lunch at the Fish Market. Had a delicious seafood lunch and fun hanging out sitting outside watching the boats go by. 

And well here we are, now hanging out at the airport at the Stone Brewery restaurant. I am so not ready to go back to work tomorrow morning (after we land after our red-eye flight) but I guess it is what it is. We had a good time and I suppose all good times have to come to an end eventually.
