Coming from the East Coast, we were up early and decided to make the best of it. The Starbucks location in the hotel made the required morning caffeine jolt easy to obtain. Coffee on the patio overlooking San Diego Harbor is a very nice way to wake up. This was Melissa’s first view of San Diego and it was off to a great start. We wandered over to the Shelter Island area to explore the downtown area a little, and let the morning traffic wind down before heading north. Typical of mornings in San Diego, the weather was a little overcast and cool, but still beautiful. One hint about packing for San Diego, always have a light jacket or fleece with you. It looks warm, but in the downtown core and along the coast the breeze can make it a little chilly – or at least that is what my wife says.
La Jolla Cove:
We were meeting some old friends for lunch at La Jolla Cove and drove up early to explore the area. The La Jolla Cove community and the location on the water are beautiful. We spent a few hours exploring the rocky cove. The pelicans, seagulls and sea lions provided plenty of entertainment and opportunities to photograph. The people watching can be fun too.
Lunch was at Brockton Villa, which overlooks the cove. We ordered off the breakfast menu. The food was amazing, the chef puts a unique twist on traditional breakfast food. Take time to explore the menu and be a little daring, you will not regret it! The food was wonderful, the view amazing and the chance to catch up with friends the perfect way to start the weekend.
