What did you do last weekend?

My  husband and I  spent a long weekend in San Diego.  Luckily we have friends in high places (literally) who generously gave us free air plane tickets.   We had never been to San Diego, so we decided to check it out.

We stayed at this resort which has beautiful grounds and lots of incredible birds – like this Blue Heron – and tropical plants.  We  checked out the historic Gaslamp district, the famous Hotel Del Coronado, and saw the sun set in La Jolla.

But the San Diego Zoo and Sea World were definitely the highlights of the trip.  This was the first time I’ve gotten to see real life Koalas; my very favorite animal.  The panda was also a first.  But feeding dolphins was the show stopper.  That is something I will remember for the rest of my life.  What a wonderful weekend!

  1. Aren’t vacations great? It doesn’t matter where you go, there are always fascinating things to see and do.
    The little koala is adorable! Didn’t you just want to bring him home with you?

  2. FREE? FREE? That’s awesome. I’m a big fan of free! Score! I don’t think I get free stuff from any of my friends. Oh wait a second. My friend bought my desert today (well we split the pie- strawberry-rhubarb! yum!) AND some very generous benefactor picks up my domain tab every year which is really amazing! So yeah- good times. Yay for free stuff!
