Sunset in San Diego

We spent three nights in San Diego but I didn’t take a single photo until the final evening. I’ve been to San Diego before and done the zoo, Balboa Park and the old town. This time I came down with a nasty cold, Andrew with a hangover and together we were a bit pathetic.

But on the final day we got our act together and drove a little bit out of the city to Torrey Pines for a beach day. It was strange weather, hot and sunny inland with some sea fog directly over the beach. I still managed to fall asleep on the sand and wake up with one side of my face slightly pink though.

The water was refreshing and perfect for blowing out the cobwebs. At one point we noticed a bunch of people on the sand pointing to the water, we turned around and there was a pod of dolphins not far away. Magic.

We drove slightly south to Ocean Beach for dinner. Ocean Beach turned out to be quintessential California; a slightly grungy palm tree lined main street leading down to the ocean, dudes on skateboards, sushi bars, burger joints , the smell of pachtouchli oil wafting from hippy boutiques…

After a day at the beach, I had a hankering for fish and chips and Andrew wanted a burrito. Luckily, we stumbled upon Mike’s Taco Club which offered both.

Have a look at this batter:

Intense.

Seriously delicious stuff. Although I always feel such guilt after fish and chips, all that beige food.

After dinner we took a stroll along the pier to watch sunset.
