We start off the trip with some crispy bacon
We had a convertable rented from Dollar- it took about half an hour for the shuttle to get us from the airport,
than over 30 minutes in line to get the car. It may be one of the noisiest places we've even been to- planes flying directly overhead,
trains going by...
Time was a little tight due to the car rental, so we stopped at a local grocery store and did a picnic, which was nice.
We had a chicken ceasar wrap, pasta salad, watermelon, and flavored lemonades.
Tide pools (second low tide 3:29pm- closes at 4:30)
I was really looking forward to this, but unfortunately we didn't see much.
Cabrillo tide pools Info Driving to the hotel
Everything in San Diego seemed to be only a 15 minute drive away
$957 for hotel and car
A few years ago I bought the comforter that was the same one used in this hotel.
We wanted to take a quick dip in the pool, but it was just tiny and cold
Gaslamp area We could walk to restaurants, and discovered a
Yard House, which was one of my favorite places in Honolulu
I had wings and the garlic noodles, Linda loved the lettuce wraps
The US Grant Hotel, a cool grand ole hotel next to the restaurant
Massive ice cream scoops- the blue one is actually vanilla
Dinner at Hotel del Coronado's Sheerwater 7:30pm outside
It was a great setting which I figured would remind me of one of my favorite spots-
The Kahala (back in Hawaii)
The food was just OK- seabass was overcooked, soul was decent. Crab cakes were good.
Afterwards we'd go to the movie theater (so close to our hotel we parked there then walked) to see "
Traitor", but it was just OK.
