Sandy Eggo

Jake and I had a wonderfully relaxing vacation to San Diego last weekend. We stayed on Coronado Island, which, we decided, is where we'd like to retire in 5 years.

(we rented a partial condo from someone off of craigslist, and had a great experience with them, if you're interested)

We brought our bikes, which Jake managed to magically fit into the trunk of our Geo, and they totally made the trip.

Our days basically went like this:

Wake up,

walk over to a European crepe bakery for breakfast,

head to the beach for a couple hours.
Watch some dolphins playing off shore.
Head back to our condo,

get the bikes, ride around town,
deciding on our favorite houses in the neighborhood,

and then park our bikes at a local restaurant for dinner.

Coronado is such a family-friendly place. The beaches were full of little kids, and everyone walking around town either had a dog or a 2-year-old with them. Or both. And at night, the hot spot was the local ice cream shop. Which was heavenly and ridiculously reasonably priced.

Other highlights of the trip:

Our afternoon in Balboa Park

And our day in La Jolla, visiting the sea lions.

All in all, I would say we had an awesome time, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

The End.
