we saw turtles doing inappropriate things...

Among other things on our trip to San Diego, which we are officially back from (wahhhh) and I want to share all the fun Bradley and I had to make you jealous!

Our first stop after our rental car and breakfast at a place called Perry's was the San Diego Zoo!!!!!!! It's huge (twss). We spent over four hours there. Highlights included: giraffes, watching two turtles do inappropriate things, and the lion feeding. 

Why do giraffes just rock?!

So close to the lions.


Next up, we stopped at the beach near our hotel. The hotel was nothing to write home about, but it wasn't really an issue, since we were hardly in it. Mission Beach near our hotel was quite nice though. Since the beach was only about 5 mins from our hotel, we ventured to this one a few times throughout the weekend. It is home to Belmont Park, which was fun to walk around, but we didn't do any of the rides. Also, go to Sand Bar for fish tacos. Yumm! 

Obligatory stop to In-N-Out: check. Workout the next morning after In-N-Out not as enjoyable.

For our second day, Brad's friend from DC, who now lives in LA, came to hang out and we hit up Mission Beach in the morning and then headed over to Torrey Pines for an afternoon hike.  The views were fantastic and there were plenty of trails to check out.  We probably hiked around 5 miles by the time we were done. 

I didn't really get many photos of one of my favorite places we went for food and drinks, but if you're in the Gaslamp area of San Diego make sure you check out The Hopping Pig. Great vibe. Great Gastropub. Great Beer. Great food. 

Come back tomorrow for more San Dego fun! (oh and Friday too, because I am about to make you sick of SD by the time I am done posting about my vacation. Can I go back yet?! Work is zero fun compared to playing in San Diego, not to mention the rain I had to come back to in Portland. Boo, you whore.

Those giraffes are adorable! Although I think my favorite zoo animal is the hippo. By the way, have you ever seen one poop? Google it - not even joking. It'll make you laugh if you need a pick-me-up ever!
