Sweet San Diego

Sweet San Diego

I’ve always enjoyed traveling, but these days dreaming and planning a vacation are sometimes more fun than experiencing it. Having just returned from a week in San Diego, my dreams did come true.

Nonstop flights, no delays, luggage intact, free rental car, but the sweetest part of San Diego was seeing our oldest son and his family—attending our grandson’s first birthday party. How special did I feel when he sat still in my lap one evening for over an hour watching Out of Africa on TV with my husband and I as we were babysitting. If only SD were only a few hours away from Austin, Texas by car so we could see them more often and feel some of that incredible weather.

That was the next sweetest thing about SD—sunny 70ish days with cooler evenings, a nice break from 100˚ Texas temperatures. While there I tried very hard to memorize the cool breeze feeling. I did discover one negative thing I hadn’t ever noticed. SD is not a good place for straight hair. So glad I remembered my sunhat.

I’m always thankful for travel recommendations so here are a few memorable details of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at the Mission Bay Hyatt Resort Hotel. I was very impressed with the service and friendliness of all the staff along with the very comfortable bed (the most important criteria of my hotel visits). I highly recommend breakfast and dinner at the Red Marlin, especially the Crab Cake Benedict. I actually ate it three times!

At the start of the week we had to make a run at one of my favorite places— Trader Joes for snacks. During the week we enjoyed a delightful view and lunch at George’s at the Cove in La Jolla, walked around Coronado Island at the Del. Two of my favorite clothing stores this trip were Pomegranate in La Jolla on Prospect and Carol Gardyne Boutique on Columbia in Little Italy.

How thankful am I to live and have family in two of the sweetest cities in America.
