Southern California, I’m really going to miss you. The weather was amazing, the food was great, the attractions and the people all very nice. We enjoyed the last four days in sunny San Diego and are not ready to come back to reality. We stayed at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla and enjoyed sightseeing in San Diego and La Jolla, hikes and runs in Torrey Pines State Park, and catching up on our reading by the pool.
The sunsets were incredible in San Diego. This first picture is of the sunset from The Lodge at Torrey Pines overlooking the Torrey Pines Golf Course.
The ocean is incredible after a hike through Torrey Pines State Park. The cliffs and the views were breathtaking.
We enjoyed a day at the San Diego Zoo. Josh’s favorite animal was the koala and I really liked the polar bears, elephants, penguins and giraffes.
Then we enjoyed an amazing dinner at Juniper & Ivy, one of Richard Blais’s restaurants. Our dinner was excellent, another one for the books. We’ve been doing really well with Top Chef restaurants. The pictures never do the food justice but let me assure you the picture above of the General Tso’s Cauliflower is incredible.
The next day we enjoyed a relaxing day at the hotel and then an evening stroll along the coast in La Jolla. We saw another incredible sunset and views of the Pacific.
Also, the seals in La Jolla Cove cannot be missed.
As if we did not do enough activity, we capped off our last day in California with a morning run to Torrey Pines Glideport. It was too foggy and early for gliders.
However, we did see some surfers on their way down to the tides.
And I finally ran more than a mile with Josh! We ran for over 3 miles!
And another hike later in the morning through a different trail down to Torrey Pines Beach. Finally a bump picture I don’t hate to commemorate the 20 week mark.
Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!
