San Diego Recap.

We recently got back from our annual trip to San Diego. As always, it was too short, but it was great to spend time with my brother-in-law and my best friend and her husband.

We got in on a Thursday afternoon and headed straight for In-n-Out after dropping off our bags. Let's be serious, this was one of the most important stops on the trip.

We then cruised to Mission Beach. It was sunny at first, but then quickly got cloudy. I didn't know that happened in San Diego!

After Mission Beach, we headed to old town San Diego. I was amazed by the massive succulents.

On Friday, we met some friends for lunch over by the USS Midway.

Justin had been eying an antique map store in La Jolla, so we went there for him to peruse some maps of Texas. He found 2 that he liked -- now we just have to frame them and find a good spot to hang them in the house. And no trip to La Jolla is complete without stopping by the sea lions.

One poor sea lion had a fishing net around his head. They were doing a news story while we were there about trying to rescue him. If you look closely, you can see the plastic. He is the one laying right in the middle, facing the water. I am happy to report that a few days after we left, they were able to remove the plastic. Here is an update.

The views are absolutely gorgeous:

After running to Trader Joe's (I love that place so much, it is getting its own post), we headed to dinner at the Wine Vault. They have a delicious 3-course prix fixe menu on Friday nights.

We were up and wearing our burnt orange at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday for the big UT/OU game. The group consumed massive amounts of breakfast casserole. The one below, is one of the three we made.

On Sunday, we went to Point Loma. The weather wasn't overly cooperative. At our friends' house, it was sunny outside, but when we got to Point Loma, it was cloudy and chilly. The tank top and shorts weren't such a good idea. But there was great scenery, nonetheless. How cool are those rock formations? (click to see the detail)

We also saw the Point Loma lighthouse.

More gorgeous views:

After Point Loma, we went to Urban Solace for dinner. They serve "fancy" comfort food. It was delicious. Then we wrapped up the evening with some Scattergories.

While the views and weather are always nice in San Diego, the best part of the trip was hanging out with friends and family we don't get to see nearly enough. We had a great trip and are already thinking about our next time out there.
