San Diego Day 4…

This morning we went shopping! We went to Fashion Valley Centre, an outdoor mall. These outdoor malls in California are very cool but, I find them to be usually high end! I bought lots of yummy, smelling goodies at Bath & Body Works they had one heck of a deal going on & I had the BEST Iced Caramel Latte at Better Buzz Coffee (We take the sting out of your morning or Life is better with a buzz!) way better than Starbuck’s here. I have been missing my daily cup of tea at home, of course tea isn’t the same when you make it in a hotel & they have no Tim Horton’s here & I tried Starbuck’s once for my caffeine fix but, it really sucked!

Than we went to Mission Valley Centre & went to Target there (2 floors!) but, we didn’t buy anything too exciting.

After going shopping we went to the beach in La Jolla, the beach was gorgeous again with amazing surf & the houses…ohhhhhhh!

After spending a few hours at the beach we headed back to our hotel room & cleaned up than went to the local laundry mat & washed our clothes than we went to Von’s (Safeway) & got some groceries came back to our hotel room, ate some dinner & the kid’s went swimming.

During our stay in San Diego I am the driver & my hubby is the navigator, I don’t do maps! Well my oh my are the drivers in Southern California FAST & AGGRESSIVE!!! As soon as I get off the freeways here I breathe a sigh of release, thank my lucky stars & regain my composure!!!

Night, night…off to bed! Tomorrow we are going back to Sea World.
