C A L I F O R N I A : Part 1

We spent about 2 weeks in San Diego in August and it was BEAUTIFUL.  Growing up, my family would always road trip to SD in the summers so this city has a special place in my heart.   This time around it was just me and the hubs, and it was also his first trip to the west coast.

^^ I love Balboa Park.  Walking around El Prado reminded me so much of Barcelona…the architecture, fountains, plants, gardens tucked away…just beautiful.

^^ I can't go to San Diego and not go to the San Diego Zoo…it's impossible.  And how cute is that sleeping koala?!  We also rode the sky tram which is a little freaky on a windy day.

^^ After the zoo we headed down to the Gaslamp District for shopping and eating.  The gelato at the Chocolat Cremerie…so good!  And the architecture around this downtown area is gorgeous.  

California Part 2 coming soon!
