Del Mar

Sunday, March 8, 2015

The mister and I enjoyed this past weekend in the beautiful resort town of Del Mar near San Diego, CA.  Guess San Diego got the memo that we were tired of the chill and made sure to welcome us with sunny skies and temps in the mid 70's.  Hello short sleeves!

We spent our first day at Balboa Park admiring the Spanish Colonial architecture, beautiful lush tropical gardens as well as many fascinating museums.   There is a lot of history in this park, which began during the Panama-California Exposition in the early 1900's and we took in a bit at the Museum of Man.  There we climbed the California Tower and let down our hair, before finishing our tour at their featured exhibit:  Instruments of Torture.  

Our last stop before heading to the hotel was at Prado, a quaint restaurant located in the House of Hospitality museum that boasts beautiful views of the gardens and a fabulous drink menu.  For lunch, we feasted on their delicious fish tacos and drank our fill of sangria.  With our bellies full, we waddled back to the car to continue onwards to Del Mar.  

When we arrived at our hotel L'Auberge Del Mar, the sun was beginning to make its way beyond the horizon.  After a quick costume change, we took a long walk along the beach.  It was amazing to watch the surfers and boogie boarders  enjoy the waters as the sun slowly descended.
