San Diego Adventures


We are having a great time so far in sunny California!  What a beautiful state!  Here is a recap of our first few days we’ve had here.  Today we are on our way to L.A. for a couple of days which is a few hours north of where we are in San Diego.  We are going to try to see as much as we can while we’re here, including Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Pasadena.  Hope everyone is having a great week!

Micah's Graduation, California State University San Marcos

Micah’s graduation from California State University, San Marcos!  Congrats, Micah!

Pacific Ocean, Carlsbad Beach

Calrsbad beach where we had a beach day and cookout for Micah’s graduation party.  The Pacific ocean is gorgeous!  There were many dolphin sightings that day which made me a happy girl 🙂

Sunset Carslbad Beach, San Diego

The breath-taking sunset at Carslbad Beach.

Petco Park, Padres' Game, San Diego

 I was super excited that Nick and Micah took us to a Padres game.  Nick’s parents, Micah’s dad, and our good friend Dante that we met on the cruise in January also joined us.  It was an exciting game with a plethora of home runs.  The Padres beat the Nationals 13-4.  I love me some baseball!

These are a few of my favorite things: cooking, baking, Broadway musicals, cruises, Disney World, Christmas, thunderstorms, 80's and country music, and my favorite pastime has ALWAYS been baseball. Go Yankees!

    You are attempting almost the impossible – to see LA in such a short time. Wishing you happy travels though and sightseeing. Looks like the graduation was smashing! Try not to miss your stove to much before you get home. It will always be waiting for you.. Ha ha. Hugs, R.

    San Diego is such a great city – the Gaslamp Quarter is wonderful! Have fun in LA – be sure to check out the Griffith Observatory if you have time while in Hollywood. Such wonderful views of the city from there!
