I wanna go back. Today…ok I need to pack, so tomorrow then?!
San Diego certainly did not disappoint, and I’m afraid to say that it’ll be hard for any other place to measure up. Maybe it was the house on Sunset Cliffs (unbeatable sunsets), and the pool in the backyard (that the kids loved), the 10 minute walk into Ocean Beach (surfer/hippyville), the 20 minute drive to Coronado Beach (white sand!!), and 15 minutes drive to the USS Midway (which the guys found fascinating).
The cliffs; high enough for fab views, but easy enough to climb down to great beaches. And did I mention the sunsets?! ;) It’s obviously called Sunset Cliffs Blvd for a reason, hello?!?
VW vans abound.
Evenings on the front patio were rather enjoyable. (Shooting in that evening glow – there’s nothing like it!!)
Getting all artsy, and precariously close to the edge! These colorful chairs from the living room were calling my name, however, Dean Brody’s lyrics “I’m at the edge of a cliff, you’ve got me losing my balance.” did come to mind. :}
And then there was Coronado Beach: the mica minerals make the sand sparkle like gold. The waves were rather fabulous, and Jade’s hat! Also note-worthy I think…who doesn’t love shooting large floppy hats?!
I know, I know…more sunsets, pictures of the house and digging for clams and shells down at the beach…but this was the LIFE, and it’s what I LOVED! :)
Barbies, backyards, bellies…selfies (yes, this was necessary. I’m in a total of 3 pictures on this trip, I kid you not, and years down the road family will look at these trip pics and say “I think she was there too?!?).
Aaaand then Ocean Beach, which was a real treat. One could (nearly) get high just from walking down the sidewalk (perhaps a wee overstatement but weed is legal there apparently!), which was very medicinal for all of us. After all this trip was very stressful, and we all know that stress really takes a toll on your heart. :P :D
There friends. That’s all she wrote.
P.S. One more thing after all…did I mention that I love San Diego? Go there; you’ll see what I mean.
xox. real life is calling.
