San Diego Zoo and La Jolla Tide Pools and Caves Day 10

I LOVED THIS DAY SO MUCH!! Day 10!   It was another day of leaving our hotel in bathing suits because we had a big day lined up.  First, we hit up the Donut Bar for breakfast. We read online that this was the place to get unique donuts…and that there is always a line; and yup,…

Our First Day in San Diego Day 9

About five years ago, we had mapped out a whole different California trip than the one we actually took. We planned landing in San Francisco, spending a few days road tripping in a vintage convertible all the way down the coast. Hitting all the major attractions and cities along the ride then stopping in San Diego…

Disney California Adventure Day 8

Day 8! Our only real plan was to eat breakfast at Flo’s V8 Cafe in Carsland on this morning.  Oh, and getting MAXPASS.  Which was a big help getting us on the rides we wanted, or repeating rides! It was another hot day, but not as hot as the day before. Yep, I brought it…

WB Tour and Hollywood Day 3

Pasadena, Los Angeles and Malibu- Day 2

Day two! We were in our rental car by 8AM and headed right to Pasadena. The weather was hot, but dry.  Perfect, with the sun shining and warm breezes. Our first stop was unbeknownst to me, my husband likes to surprise us a lot.  We thought we were headed for coffee then to the Gamble…
