San Diego

Dsc00201 We took a road trip to San Diego.  En route, we stopped at the Shake Shack which is right outside Laguna Beach en route to Newport Beach.  It brought back memories for me.  I lived for 6 months in Los Angeles while doing an internship my first semester senior year of college.  My grandmother lived in Laguna, so I spent a fair amount of time in Laguna visiting.  It is absolutely beautiful there. 

In San Diego, we stayed at the Hotel Del Coronado which is 5 minutes from downtown San Diego.  It is located on the island of Coronado.  The hotel is a step back in time.  If you close your eyes, you can imagine how hopping this place must have been when it first opened.  The place was packed. 

Dsc_01251 Our first trip was of course to Sea World.  I have done my share of amusement parks and after spending time on a safari, it is pretty tough seeing animals out of their natural environments.  We did a few rides which were ok and wet but nothing out of this world.  The place is basically an extension of Anheuser Busch.  Drink a bud and check out the park. 


The best part is really just hanging out with my brother and his family.  Here is my brother and Jessica. 

Dsc_01301 Although the price is not included, we all love the games.  The water shooting game is a popular one.  We made sure everyone won.  All the kids got a stuff whale and named it Shamu.  No surprises there.
