San Diego Last Days In A Nutshell

So I fell a little behind on blogging the last couple of days in San Diego.  Honestly, we contemplated leaving early because of the dreary weather, but when we woke up on Tuesday, it was beautiful! Why couldn’t it have done that the other three days we were there?

Again, we spent our breakfast at Starbucks.  Love my perfect oatmeal.  We thought about going to the gym instead of riding all around San Diego because of how cool the weather was, but we sucked it up and went out anyway.

We rode out to a pier with a bunch of crabs and enjoyed the marina. There were like twenty stray cats hanging out there.  What a perfect place for them to hide…all you can eat crab!

 We then headed over to Mission Beach along the boardwalk and then up to La Jolla.  It’s so fun to ride along the boardwalk and people watch.  You see some crazy people.  We take a side street up to La Jolla from there.  I say up, because it has the hugest hills to ride on.  I love the view in the background.

It ends on top of Mount Soledad which is a monument above La Jolla that gives a great panoramic view of the city. Mike wanted pose like Rocky with his bike.  This was before he decided to mountain bike the side of the mountain with a few onlookers watching him.

We went to the San Diego LDS Temple the next day, where you can see it from this mountain also.  Of course, the sun decided to come out this day (which was the last day there), so we had to take advantage of the sunshine. 

 

It was fun to tour the city on the bikes.  Later on we had to stop at our favorite Wahoo’s and get some fish and shrimp tacos.  I used to order the fish tacos all the time and you can see my recipe where I try to remake the whole plate under my Recipes section.  This time I switched over to shrimp and they were awesome!  The calorie count is a little bit lower so its good if you are watching your waist.  Also,I am on the hunt now for Mr. Lee’s Chili Sauce that they have at the restaurant.  I can’t find a link for it anywhere.

And then we headed off to Old Town to check out the sites, including the Mormon Batallion Museum.

I love Old Town.  It is so fun to walk around and smell all the aromas of the restaurants, as well as the museums.  Mike makes fun of me because I like to go to museums.  He says I’m an old fart for liking that stuff, even though he goes with me and enjoys it as much as I do.

We spent our last moments at the beach where Mike boogie boarded while I sat and read.  I love the ocean, and I love to swim in the ocean.  But I can’t swim in the Pacific without a wet suit.  Give me the Atlantic any day or the Gulf of Mexico, and I will be in the water, but I can’t get myself to go into the Pacific Ocean.  Maybe if I went to Hawaii or something?

Question:  If you could go anywhere in the United States on vacation, where would you go?
