San Diego

Well I figure since I went to San Diego a couple of weeks ago, I should probably get around to blogging about it.
We went with Cameron, Shayna, Courtney, Derek,
and Jenny

Dave and I had a wonderful time the few days we were in San Diego. I was really excited to show him some of my favorite places that I used to go when I lived there. Our first stop was Coronado. It was great to drive over the bridge that spans across the ocean as you arrive on the island. We went there in the evening and even played in the water. The water was cold, but after your feet went numb it was fine.
This picture shows the city of San Diego across the bay from Coronado.

On Sunday we went to Sea World. Another one of my favorite places. Our first destination was the Dolphin exhibit. We wanted to be sure to feed the Dolphin's so we could have the opportunity to be up close to them and pet them. It was so cool because anyone who bought fish to feed the Dolphins got to go to a special area that was roped off from everyone else so we got special access.
The best part of the entire Sea World trip was the Shark Encounter. For those of you who don't know, Sharks are my favorite animal. Dave's favorite animal is also a shark so we were in 7th heaven. We found out that for an extra $10 you can go behind the scene's and get a chance to pet a shark. We will have to do that for sure next time we visit. Cool shark teeth in the background. I am sure they are fake, but it is such a great exhibit.
We were just walking down the path to go to another exhibit and we saw all these flamingo's just walking around out in the open. There were Seaworld employee's present and I think they were herding them to the flamingo exhibit.
We saw a lot of shows. I always like to see the animals and all of the neat tricks they can do. It is amazing how high the dolphins and killer whales can jump out of the water.
On Monday we went to Pt. Loma, Seaport Village, and another one of my favorite places La Jolla. I love La Jolla because of the cliffs and because you get to see seals on the beach and in the ocean. It felt so good to be back home in San Diego. I loved being back at the beach and became a little homesick. I was happy to be able to share this special part of my life with Dave. Dave fell in love with San Diego and wants to move there now. I wouldn't be opposed to that, but only time will tell.
