Needing a quick late winter getaway, Mike and I spent 5 days in San Diego last week. It's one of my favorite cities to visit, and every time we go there we find new things to like.
Thinking about what to share today, I decided to focus on things that surprised us and/or made us laugh!
These guys were outside the door of our hotel room everyday! They would have come in if I had let them, but that would have been a little much... I think they spent the night each night in the bushes and plants on the other side of the walkway.
This is a Black Crowned Night Heron. He was hanging out on a small fishing pier near where we stayed.
Here's what he does when he sees a fisherman cutting up his bait fish!
We've laughed and laughed over this picture!
Mike enjoys talking to people we meet here and there - he is much better at that than I am. These folks were scientists, collecting grasses from the tide pools we were exploring.
The funny part - they told him they take these grasses back to the lab, let them dry out, and then iron them so that they can study them under the microscope! Who knew that scientists use irons?
We loved these benches along the streets in Imperial Beach, a city south of San Diego where Mike was stationed when he was in the Navy.
The San Diego sky alternates all day long between clouds and sun, so from one day to the next you never know what kind of sunset view there will be. About our third evening there, we could tell there was going to be a beautiful sunset, so we found our way to an area called Sunset Cliffs to catch the view. Along with hundreds of other people!
I guess we should have realized that sunsets in San Diego are an event!
It was worth braving the crowds, though!
Of course we enjoy any time we can spend by the ocean!
Thanks for sharing it with me today! Hope you're having a great week! Check out all of the I Like Thursday posts at Not Afraid of Color.
