Travel Tuesday: San Diego Day Trip

IMG_2173

Good Morning everyone! Sydnee here…. Again. We’re kind of slacking on blog post ideas at the moment so I thought I would share what we did on our recent one-day trip to San Diego, California. All of the pictures her were taken by me.

The day started out early… 5 am early but we wanted to get a full day there. Once we got there we basically spent the whole time finding somewhere to eat we had some places in mind but they were too crowded so we had to keep driving, but that wasn’t such a bad thing because we ended up by Scripps beach where Lindsey and I took a quick ankle dip in the water.

\From there we just decided to go to an old favorite to eat. Point Break Café on Shelter Island has some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. It is a quirky little café across the street from the ocean that has amazing chocolate chip pancakes. We got lunch there for the first time on this trip and let me tell you that burger is my best friend. It was cooked perfectly and it was the perfect size, the perfect size in burger language is “can barely fit it into my mouth” perfect. The fries were also really good so our whole family recommends this cute little restaurant in the heart of Point Loma.

After that we went to Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography. It was really crowded but I still enjoy reading and looking at the cute little marine animals. My favorite thing is the view on the outside pictured here is the pier we were by in the first picture so we’re pretty high up.

\When we left Scripps we headed over to Seaport Village so we could do a little shopping and then have dinner before we left. Cierra and I both bought Tervis cups from the Tervis store (our guilty pleasure). Her cup has little donuts on it so it matches her blog planner and I got a Toronto Maple Leafs one because hockey season is coming up! After the Tervis store Lindsey and I headed to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront so we could get Starbucks, we both got Java Chip Frappes. Almost right after the Frappes we went to our favorite pizza place, Assagio’s Pizza Pasta Plus. They ran out of breadsticks (still salty about it) but the pizza was pretty dang good and the best way to eat pizza is by the ocean.

After we ate, it was time to head out so we got in the car to head back home to the heat. Did I mention that it was 70 degrees the whole time? Well it was and I loved it. It wasn’t a long trip by any means but it was nice to spend a day by the ocean then have Sunday to get ready for the week ahead. As they say, a Saturday at the beach is better than a Saturday at home! I’m not sure who says that or if that’s even a things but I like it! Thank you for reading I’ll see you back here next Tuesday!
