Vacation: Beaches

Today we enjoyed getting to see some fabulous beach views. After sleeping in a little and checking out of our hotel in La Mirada, we made our way back to our original San Diego hotel. Our first stop was Corona del Mar. This was the beach we always used to go to for swimming. We enjoyed looking at the fancy houses around that area, I can’t imagine how much the must cost. It was so pretty to look out at the ocean view. I wish it would have been warm enough to go swimming, but it was pretty chilly. The breeze felt nice, but with the temperature being a little lower right near the water I needed a jacket to walk around.

Then we continued our drive down Pacific Coast Highway to Ruby’s for lunch. Ruby’s is my favorite California restaurant. I haven’t minded too much having to eat my own food at restaurants so for until we got to Ruby’s. I had a hard time deciding if I should just eat it anyways. In the end I decided not to, I knew I would feel really sick if I did. I’m really glad that Jesse was able to eat it for the first time though. That was the one place I really wanted him to eat.


After checking in to our hotel and unloading our luggage, we drove over to La Jolla Cove to take in some more ocean views. It’s so funny to watch all the seals that like to gather there. We watched them swim on and off the beach and enjoy all the attention they were getting from their viewers.

It was great to just watch all the waves crashing into the shore. I really miss getting to watch waves at home. Amazing!!
