I’m back from the west coast and I’m not going to lie…California is one of my new favorite places! I had to go to San Diego to work the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and Half. I had a small team of 14 and my Mom came along for the ride. I stayed a couple extra days so it was part work trip and part vacation. From the moment we flew over the mountains of California and I saw the palm trees I knew I was going to like it. The weather was gorgeous and we had a fantastic hotel room with gorgeous views right downtown…it was awesome! I thought I’d share my trip in photos…
I took these of the harbor and the city on the first night we were there on a post dinner walk.
Hotel Del Coronado and The Beach.
We headed here to check out the Del, the beach and have lunch one day. I loved it and wish we could have stayed longer!
The San Diego Zoo.
This was my absolute favorite part of the trip! There were so many baby animals including baby koala’s, a 3 week old giraffe and a pregnant lion!
We were pretty lucky and had some amazing food. Cafe 21 was an amazing organic lunch, The Broken Yolk had an incredible breakfast complete with fresh squeezed orange juice and homemade biscuits, and the standout was a fancy dinner on our final night at Top of the Market overlooking the harbor…the drinks were incredible, the food (especially the seafood!) was divine and the view was amazing!
I absolutely loved San Diego and can’t wait to go back! I would love to spend a day at the beach over at Coronado and see some of the parts of the city I missed!
