Sunny San Diego

Here i am back from my little vacation in San Diego. My mom and I went to get some sun after this long dreary, cold and snowy winter. When we arrived in San Diego on Sunday night we were greeted with sunshine and warmth and lots of color! We stayed on the bay at this hotel on Shelter Island. It was so beautiful! On one side of the hotel was the bay with all the boats and the other side is the ocean! We tried to fit in as much as we could in 3 days, plus a drive over to Palm Springs to visit my mom's friend. The highlights were Balboa Park, with all the flowers and beautiful Spanish architecture! Totally reminded me of Sevilla Spain!


Balboa Park also has a gorgeous rose garden, can you believe it, Roses in bloom in March! After that we made the big drive over the (kinda freaky) Coronado Bridge... Which we found out that it isn't a stable bridge! The navy can move it around to get the big freighter ships through!!! Coronado was a nice town, lots of cute shops and a great beach! Oh the Ocean! My long lost love!
Tuesday we spent the day driving up to Carlsbad to go to the Flower Farms! Holy Crap! Unbelievable! Gorgeous Rununculus fields that cover acre upon acre of red, yellow, orange, white and pink rununculus! I was mesmerized!

We then made the drive into the dessert to visit my mom's friend Val in Palm Desert, which is a city next to Palm Springs. It was HOT and 95 when we got there! I was in love with the weather. We also had a cool drive through the mountains... my other long lost love!

Wednesday we headed back to San Diego for some more sun by the pool

and a dinner cruise around the harbor that night. There were still a million more things i wanted to do, and a few days more i would've been just fine with that... but alas, i am home with good memories, lots of pictures and a nice tan!
Plus when i got home, there was a package from S.Korea from my friend Bonnie who got me the nicest table runner ever from Thailand! I love it! Thanks Bonnie! AND my TWIN'S Tickets were waiting for me for my first game of the season next week! Life is Wonderful!
