I've been dying to go there for years but when living in NY, California isn't really a hop, skip or jump away.
Now, that we live in AZ, it's not really any of those three above either but it is a mini days drive away and that is good enough for me!
We decided to go for our 2 year anniversary on Memorial Day weekend, which was a few days after our actual anniversary but I didn't care. We left Saturday AM and came back Monday evening.
We had a blast. Our hotel wasn't as nice as I had anticipated but I was ok with that since we weren't spending much of our time there.
So, Friday once we got there, we checked into the hotel then went down to the Gaslamp District, walked around and had a quick dinner then went to the Padres game. Wow...what a cool stadium that was. VERY family/kid oriented. Then we went back to our hotel and ordered pizza and just vegged.
Saturday we went to Coronado Island. What a cute place this was. We decided that's where we want to retire. haha We'll see if that actually happens. Anywho......we drove around trying to find the perfect spot for the beach. We ended up having lunch, at a Pub that took FOREVER to get us our food then we parked and walked to the beach. AAAAAAAAAH, how I love thy beach.
We were there for about 3 hours. At first, I was freezing. I even had a blanket over me until we realized it was warmer if you laid down. haha We both ended up getting burnt but not too terribly bad. Then we went back to our hotel, got pretty and went to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary dinner. MMMMMMMMMM. It was delicious. My drink was the best part. haha
On Sunday we went to Seaport Village for a few hours and then drove home. I was surprised with all the Border Patrol stops but I guess when you can see the bordered fence in the desert, it's necessary. lol
I loved it and can't wait to go back.
