Sunny SD, Baby!

Ah, was I glad to have a three day weekend! Work has been quite hectic and having an extra day off allowed me to get in some much needed relaxation. I decided to take a mini vaca in San Diego to unwind.

Our group of four single ladies ended up staying at Paradise Point, a hotel located directly across from Sea World. It was quite different from most hotels, as the rooms are bungalow style and there are several pools and small lagoons located on the 44 acre grounds. It reminded me of a Mexican resort, and I was quite happy that it was a change of pace from the typical high rise hotels found in large cities like San Diego. Here are photos of Paradise Point, taken with my camera and my iPhone...


Saturday night we hit up some of the local breweries in North Park. It was nice just hanging out, having a beer, talking with the girls. We took a break from drinking to grab some dessert and coffee. My red velvet cupcake and mocha were delish! iPhones don't have a flash, so these snapshots are a bit dark...


Warning: For those of you from the East Coast, please do not hate me after you read this next portion...

It was in the high 70s in San Diego this weekend (and mid 80s in LA). With weather like that, you cannot help but see beauty in everything you come across. I was going crazy snapping photos, taking in the warmth and beauty of the city. It felt like the beginning of summer, as opposed to winter.

Sunday morning we ate breakfast outside at Cafe 976. It's a bohemian, artsy eatery in Pacific Beach, a San Diego suburb. The food wasn't that spectacular, but the atmosphere was perfect. Here are some pics taken with my iPhone...


Hope you all had wonderful weekends as well!
