Sayonara San Diego ...

but before we go lets take a look back on what a great time it was.

We only had a weekend in SD (far too short for such a great city) but we did get to see a few things. Point Loma/Cabrillo National Park was a high peninsula with incredible views of the city and the Pacific Ocean. We took a short hike with breath taking views. We also checked out the tide pools. There were a ton of hermit crabs and right before we were going to leave we saw a huge purple octopus hiding under a rock. It was great!

On Sunday afternoon we went Balboa Park. There was an organ concert playing as we walked through the park gardens. We eventually made our way to the International Cottages. The Cottages were having a festival of nations with costumes, food, music, and dancing. Needless to say we had to sample the food from every nation!

Sunday evening was the most beautiful sunset. We were so lucky to be able to walk down the beach and enjoy the evening!

I'm so jealous of all your travels. I told Brian that once the kids are out of the house, we are traveling around the world. I'm serious about that. How sad is it that I haven't even been to Europe? Glad to hear you are having fun, can't wait to hear more!
