Hi everyone!!! I’m thrilled ya’ll are back to read my San Diego Pt 2 trip. If you missed San Diego Pt 1 do not fret because you can read it HERE
Before I begin, this probably goes without saying but I am SO behind on reading blogs. The anticipation is killing me but I’m determined to catch up throughout this week and hopefully a lot this weekend. But don’t think I forgot about you!!!
SAN DIEGO PART 2
So because of my crazy sunburnI must’ve gotten some sort of sun poisoning or something because I started getting sick. At first it was allergy-like symptoms and then it slowly turned into cold-like symptoms and for some reason I wasn’t sleeping well at night so with a mix of all of that going on, I was flat out sickly….and red. Very very red.
The next AM I woke up with my face in pain, like eyelids and under eye were just so burnt (along with the rest of my face). I would wake up to swollen eyes and found myself having to do this every morning…
Yeaaah, not fun. But the swelling eventually went down afterwards.
But I knew I had to go out to buy an actual aloe leaf plant to heal the burn. I swear, if you guys don’t already know the aloe from an actual aloe leaf is the BEST thing ever for your skin. So early that next morning I did some research found a greenhouse that sold aloe plants and made Andrew take me there. God bless Andrew because not only did we have to postpone our adventures but we literally had to drive throughout San Diego to 3 separate locations to FINALLY get my hands on thisOh my lord, it was so worth it though.
(Un)fortunately it was cloudy this day so, our original beach plan was not going to happen. I think my skin was very thankful for that. So instead we headed over to the
La Jolla Coves
I’ve never been there so I had no idea what to expect, but I’ve heard nothing but great things about this place so I was excited!
The coves have such a beautiful jaw dropping view. Everywhere that you could look out it was just so beautiful and the pictures do not even do it any justice, but just so you can get an idea…
The coolest thing in my opinion were the sea lions. Just hundreds of sea lions hanging out, napping, and swimming. And I was in awe at how close you could get to them, literally within touching distance and they weren’t bothered by it at all.
They were so darn cute. Andrew and I just stood there for God knows how long just admiring.
I did some good editing because this doesn’t even show the redness from my sunburn. You’ll just have to trust me when I say, I was red. Equivalent to the red strap from my cross body purse.
La Jolla in general is such a beautiful town (city?). We walked around the downtown area and got some lunch before our next adventure which was to…
If you don’t already know (like me at the time) it’s a very popular golf course. And beautiful I should add with the views overlooking La Jolla. This was an Andrew “must-see” and I can’t even deny that it was stunning.
After Torrey Pines we relaxed for a while and headed back to La Jolla for a sushi dinner.
The next morning (it was Tuesday by then) we just hung around until our flight to San Fran.
I found a donut shop on pinterest that I was dying to go to and when I google mapped it, it was only a 4 min walk from the hotel. We saw it earlier on during our stay and EVERY.SINGLE.TIME there was a line out the door and around the corner. So I figured going on a Tuesday would be better and it was, kind of.
I’m not even going to lie, I was SO disappointed. They weren’t even that good. #UnionSquareDonuts in Somerville is still #1
Off to the airport for the second part of our California trip. I was MOST excited for San Fran.
We stayed at a super cool contemporary-hipster hotel called The Zeppelin. It was very cool and unique and perfect location.
I guess we were in the Theater district which you have to be careful because just a couple streets over is the Tenderloin District which you DO NOT want to be. But just in the opposite direction one street over was Union Square where ALL the shopping was. And thank goodness for that because I was not ready for the weather AND way underestimated the hills. After we got dinner we did a little shopping so I could get some long sleeves and a pair of sneakers #successful.
And that’s where I’m going to leave off 🙂
Come back tomorrow for San Fran adventures!
