San Diego Vacation

Hey, everyone! I got back Sunday from a week-long vacation in balmy San Diego, a beautiful city with a small town feel. We spent most of it on the beach, something I’d never done before. It was something to see the vast, endless expanse of the ocean for the first time!! We toured La Jolla, Oceanside, Mission and Pacific beaches and downtown. The day before we left we went to Sea World. Absolutely stunning! 😀

We drove ten hours the first day, to the bottom of Utah. After staying overnight, we drove the remaining seven hours through Nevada, Las Vegas and San Bernardino to the outskirts of Escondido, a suburb of San Diego. It wasn’t too hot, which was really nice. I’m not very heat tolerant.

Here are a few pictures of the end of the Grand Canyon and red rocks that we glimpsed as we drove by on the way over:
