In an unusual turn of event I have had two consecutive days off in the past two weeks.
How did I celebrate the occasion?
Well, after doing all of my homework and then some on Sunday, I set out for an adventure Monday morning!
Okay there was a slight delay in beginning my big day out. Enterprise was super busy and it was a very rainy morning. However, when it was around the time I got my rental wheels it had cleared up to a beautifully sunny afternoon.
I stopped at Sprouts and got a day’s worth of yummies, popped in a good driving soundtrack, and ventured onwards to La Jolla.
(For all you Florida folk that is LA Hoy-uh. Not LA Jolla like it’s typed. Hehe
La Jolla looks like this:
Because it has beautiful...squirrels:
With lots of:
And lots more:
So the Seals were having a sleepy morning, except a few crazy pups chasing a sea gull around.
It did start to rain briefly and while that storm rolled in I waited out the weather in the Contemporary Art Museum.
Nice exhibit and great view of the beach still. I wandered around the shops to take in more sights as it drizzled down on me and took in delicious aromas from each street corner.
Next I headed into the San Diego area- specifically the gas lamp district.
Here I saw more shops, but with a historic/ vintage theme to the overall area.
I drove onwards towards Balboa Park, and before I knew it dinner time was rapidly approaching.
I met a coworker at Passage to India.
Where we dined on pure yummyness : D
After dinner we made plans for another outing later in the week: Foot Massage**
** A note on foot massage. We went last night to the place that she frequents for a foot rub. I mean, it costs $20 and it’s an hour of pure bliss! It’s not just a foot rub. They massage your scalp, face, neck, arms, hands, feet, legs, your back, and then they do some Thai style stretching. Seriously, it was amazing! (I told her later that it also might be the most fond memory I’ll walk away from California with) :b
