On the Road for the Weekend Getaway...

I wasn't sure where we should go for the weekend... and then I visited Life in a Venti Cup and she mentioned her dream place to live was San Diego... DING! DING! DING! We have a WINNER!... let's go to San Diego... Easy trip ... hop in my car for two hours and here we are... Dowtown San Diego... The historical San Diego Gas Lamp Quarter area has been given a new life... filled with great restaurants, theatres, shopping, hotels, etc...
Fabulous architecture and colour...
Wonderful transportation to get you around downtown...
Pet Co stadium home of the Padres...
Balboa Park...

San Diego Zoo...
Sea World on Mission Bay... Last time I was in San Diego...
My youngest (now 10) enjoyed petting star fish and My oldest (now 13) posed with Shamu!
Wonderful place to stay in San Diego... The Famous Hotel Del Coronado... I have yet to stay here, but I have been on the beach next to it many times...

With our kids we opted for the Bahia Resort on beautiful Mission Bay nearby dowtown San Diego... Great family area! I have fond memories of this area... as a kid my great grandparents lived on this bay and I enjoyed many days on the beach...



This family friendly resort... has a beach with no waves... and the top feature for us was the seal pool... our kids loved it and I loved the tropical gardens... and tropical drinks!


Speaking of drinks... downtown San Diego at night is a great place to wine, dine and enjoy the nightlife...
This virtual trip has made me realize I need a REAL trip to San Diego!


I leave you with the image I had planned to paint... unfortunately... I did not have the time to do it... but... it is sooooo pretty... ENJOY! See you Monday!
