San Diego in Foggy July

August 12, 2010

I never did a recap of our San Diego trip after all that whining about getting robbed and the GRE studying craziness, so here’s a quick, mostly photo, review…

Hanna & Mom at La Jolla Shores looking pretty in the sunset-time

My family met us there and we all stayed at Paul’s mom’s house (although she was in France most of the time we were there).

We went beer-tasting (a San Diego must) at Stone and Ballast Point.  Stone was less impressive than normal, and we had interesting IPAs and a great IPL from Ballast.

We played bocce at Amici Park in Little Italy.  It was a trip highlight.  Then we walked around Little Italy and ate amazing gelatto.

Mine had almond croissants in it.

We spent a day on Coronado because of the dog-friendly beach.  Coronado is crazy busy even on a weekday, but they have a nice dog beach.

Did I mention that it was overcast and kind of cold while we were there?  What the hell, July…

After my parents left Paul and I spent a day hanging out before picking up his parents from the airport.  We checked out an AMAZING Cuban bakery in Ocean Beach called Azucar.  Delicious, beautiful, and not insanely expensive.

I took this horrible photo moments before the cakes were devoured.

We tried to check out tidepools, but for a variety of reasons(they close at four pm, the tide was too high this time of year, etc) it didn’t work out.

Instead we took Hazel back to Ocean Beach to check out their dog park.  It was awesome.  Cool people, friendly dogs.

Hiding in seaweed. Our dog is weird.

Then we ate the best fish & shrimp tacos and seafood soup of my entire life from a taco truck.

I swear to god, you have to go there if you are in San Diego.  Go!  Run!  It will make me sad for you if you don’t go.  Paul even loved them and he dislikes fish.  I don’t normally like fried fish, but this was really good and not oily or gross.  But you can get them grilled too.  And it’s so cheap.  $3.75 total for these two tacos and two soups (the soup is free).

That’s about it for that trip.  Anyone want to road trip down to San Diego anytime soon?  I could go for a taco and a beer by the beach.

    I’m not usually a fan of Baja-style (fried) fish tacos, but oh my god, those fish tacos look amazing.
