San Diego Week.

August 12, 2013

Oh, you guys. I love California.

Seriously. Sarasota is a pretty fantastic place, but California—and specifically San Diego? They are something else. We arrived on Wednesday, August 1, on a flight from Orlando, and from the second I stepped off the plane, I was smitten. First of all, it was 72 degrees outside. In August. As a lifelong Floridian, this is something I almost couldn’t wrap my head around, because here it is a delightful (um, not) 90 degrees every day, which means it feels like 100 degrees-plus, and the humidity is always crazy, crazy high. When the temps dropped into the mid-60s that first night, I almost fainted I was so happy.

It helped that we were staying at a great hotel—a Sheraton on Harbor Island with views of the marina—and that we were central to everything; it didn’t take us more than 20 minutes to get to any of the places we visited. And although we were San Diego for my little brother’s wedding, which took up a huge chunk of our time (as well it should), I really felt like we did (and saw) (and tasted) quite a lot.

So this week I’ll be telling you about bits and pieces from the trip—I am by no means any kind of travel expert (in fact, I am woefully, woefully under-traveled for my 30 years), but I love to share, so there you go. Hope you enjoy—see you back here tomorrow. xoxo

    Oh the boats! The boats! Harbors are just the prettiest and I doubt I will ever tire of running, walking, or just sitting and looking onto them.

    For some reason I thought you were going to SF (long week over here) and was super excited to see you were in SD! I went a few years ago and just adored it. Thanks for the suggestion on hotel – I’m considering this a next stop for A and I.

    Can’t wait to hear and see more of the trip! Your instagrams were stunnnning!

    xx, e

    […] it probably started this summer with my brother’s wedding (which, although lovely and in the most beautiful place I’ve ever been, was pretty stressful for me and my family). Things were fine until my […]
