So secretly who doesn’t like playing tourist? We never seem to get the chance to truly enjoy the sights, history and events that our city offers us because we are busy photographing peoples lives, playing with our dogs, and running our business. This lack of sight seeing is not a reflection upon San Diego, Brett and I haven’t taken advantage of any city we have lived in.
So I can’t begin to tell you how happy I get when friends come into town to stay with us. It’s the perfect excuse for us to go rent those silly little yellow GoCars, or tour the Maritime Museum, take the Old Town Trolly tour, or maybe kayak out from La Jolla Shores. When a couple of our favorite friends, Anthony and Cassie rolled into town with 2 beach cruisers hanging out of their truck bed I got giddy with excitement. Our poor bikes sit in back yard most of the time waiting someone to come along and give us an excuse to take them out. (I promise we would ride them more if we didn’t on a series of seriously steep hills). Bird Rock Coffee Roasters was our first stop on the bikes and once we were properly loaded up with caffeine we headed down to Mission Bay to start our adventurous weekend. We navigated the alleyways of Pacific Beach until we reached the peacefulness of the bay. Somewhere along the way to took a wrong turn and attempted riding our bikes through the sand. Some of us were more successful at this than others.
Day 2 of Anthony and Cassie’s stay brought us to the Point Loma lighthouse. I hate to admit that I was so young the last time I visited the lighthouse that I don’t actually remember it, at all. Yeah I’m starting to think Brett and I need to play tourist more often. The tide pools around the lighthouse are beautiful and the cliffside landscape reminds me of spots along the Oregon Coast. We took a self guided tour of the lighthouse (all of 5 minutes) somehow I always seem to forget how small old lighthouses can be. The look so much bigger from the outside.
Yep Brett and I love adventuring in our town!
