We’re Back!

It doesn’t seem to matter where we travel – and we love to travel –  it is always great to be home.

We spent 8 great days in the Southern California beach area – exploring from LA to San Diego. We loved checking out the coastal towns and beaches. We have two favorites; Pacific beach and Laguna beach.

We love the restaurants and shops of Laguna Beach. The variety is endless and upscale. We had a great meal while sitting on the Ces’t la vie’s heated patio while watching the surfers. Top notch service and really good food for a reasonable price. Ask for James and tell him we sent you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Pacific beach is close to San Diego and has variety to spare. We loved this beach because it is a mini Venice Beach. Lots of variety to the shops but not as crazy and crowded. We had some great drinks and food at the Pacific Beach Ale house. Service was very good. We tried the Firehouse restaurant and found the service and atmosphere to be lacking.

We stayed in Del Mar for 5 nights. Del Mar is pricey and a bit snobbish. Heck, we’re just regular folks like you and we enjoy finding small restaurants in out of the way places. one treasure was a restaurant in Encinitas called Blue Ribbon Pizzeria. No hard alcohol but the beer was cold, the wine devine and the Pizza is out of this world. They make their own sausage!
