I cannot believe we are finally here. San Diego is everything we had hoped - and more! The weather has been gorgeous, and the neighborhood where we are staying has such a fun atmosphere. 6 houses from the beach! Is this the life or what?!
We flew in yesterday around noon (California time) and after finding our condo, headed straight for the beach. The boys brought along buckets of sand toys that they found in the garage here, and they played for hours building sand castles and running in the waves. Dave got in a little body boarding too!
Me? I was reading a book on my towel - happy as a clam. The water was a little cool for me. Actually, it's probably just that the temp here is cooler than I'm used to - low 80's with a breeze, which feels incredible when you're not wet.
In the evening we drove around looking for somewhere to eat dinner along the waterfront.
Look what we found!
Apparently there are tons of Jayhawk fans in San Diego too! We knew we liked this town! (And of course we had to eat there :).
Tonight I went for a run on the beach at sunset. I could not believe how much I enjoyed it (I rarely enjoy my runs these days - and am always trying to think of a way out of them! Then I try on my jeans. That always does it). It was considerably easier with the salty mist of the sea blowing across my face and the wet sand to cushion my stride. I think I'm going to have to move here!
