The San Diego adventure

Posted on by Dad

Last weekend, we made a family trip to San Diego, California. Once again, Avery was an excellent traveler and made the best of a six-hour car ride that included truck stops in the middle of nowhere and US Border Control checkpoints (Note to self/mom: We should probably bring her birth certificate next time. Just one of the joys of living in Arizona.).

We stayed in Ocean Beach, which – not surprisingly – has an awesome beach for people AND a separate awesome beach for dogs. I’m not sure which one Avery liked better. On Friday, we took a stroll down to the beach and checked out some of the local culture. On Saturday, we started the day back down at the beach to taste some of the local sand (yuck!), then we headed downtown to walk around and check out the Gaslamp District. Saturday night, we headed up to Del Mar to have dinner with my friend (and former boss) Maria – now affectionately referred to as “Auntie Ria”. They hit it off immediately and Maria has kindly offered trips to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo when we have a chance to make it back. I’m sure it won’t be long.
