San Diego: Day 3- Jan 6, 2012
Another day of perfect weather. We started off with a lovely breakfast cooked by momma Janine, comprised of eggs, stove toast and nutrigrain bars. We made some gunky peanut butter & jelly sandwiches to bring with us for lunch and headed to La Jolla Cove. The views of the ocean there are absolutely amazing. Between the surfers, pelicans, seals, beaches, coves…just everything made it one of my favorite places instantly. We climbed on the cliffs and explored the beaches, stood just a few feet away from pelicans and sun bathing seals, and saw squirrels that actually looked healthy. It was all awesome.
After La Jolla, we explored North Park, the area that Kirk lives in. We found a bunch of record and antique shops. Then when Kirk got out of work we went to Sunset Cliffs for the sunset, but unfortunately it got too cloudy to really see anything. Still, it was beautiful like everything else in California.
We spent the rest of the evening downtown in the heart of the city and checked out a few bars. The first place had karaoke, but they failed to let me sing Pearl Jam, so I wasn’t too impressed. After that we went to a place called Wet Willie’s- which totally made up for everything else. It was an actual smoothie bar, with endless frozen booze smoothies. Me & Ashton had delicious Pink Pussies as some guy named Daryl tried to hit on us and Janine. He knew instantly that we weren’t from Cali (which triggered a Jersey Shore discussion/comparison), thought Ashton was a lesbian (typical), and that I was her girlfriend (also typical). I’d say it was quite an entertaining night overall.
Las Vegas bound tomorrow.
