San Diego Days 11 and 12

This was our day to celebrate our 17th Anniversary away, and we reserved it to do absolutely nothing but hangout at the beach and eat.  Boy, was this a big day.  hahaha This is our last full day in California.  We departed the 12th day. Day 11! We started off by waking up as early as…
