San Diego for the Weekend

San Diego for the Weekend on Waketon Road Blog

I’m just getting home from my weekend in San Diego visiting my hubby. Brian is in the Navy Reserves and every year he has a two-week duty somewhere. The past couple of years he has been lucky enough to get San Diego. I never complain because it’s the perfect excuse for me to take a long weekend and visit him.

I feel like it’s been ages since Brian has been home so this weekend was much-needed. In addition to the Navy, Brian works full-time in off-shore drilling and has been away at work since November. So needless to say I jumped at the chance to see him for a few days.

I arrived in San Diego bright and early on Friday and we wasted no time heading downtown for breakfast. We stumbled upon the cutest spot – Cafe Chloe and spent the next couple of hours catching up over our lattes. If you are in the downtown Gaslamp Quarter I highly recommend this spot. It was the best French toast I have ever had!

After breakfast we decided to check out Old Town which we hadn’t been able to fit in on our previous trip (more here and here). It’s such a cute area to walk around and enjoy the cute shops. The weather was in the 50s and overcast which had the Californians bundled up, but for us it felt great.

By the afternoon the sun was starting to peek through the clouds which gave us the idea to drive over to Sunset Cliffs. Even though neither of us were dressed for a hike along the cliffs I’m so glad we went! It was a highlight of the trip for me. The California coastline is so beautiful.

There is something so amazing about seeing the power of how the ocean has shaped the land. The sun was hitting the water and creating the most beautiful glow. We hiked down the trails (yes in my pointy toe flats) to the water and spent a little time just enjoying the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks.

It’s the moments like these that are always the best on any trip. The unplanned experiences that happen by being open and adventurous. Brian and I are usually up for almost anything when we travel together. At the end of the day if our feet aren’t tired and sore then we didn’t do it right.

I’ll be sharing a little more of our time in San Diego this week. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great week! Xo Bryn

    I love San Diego! My friend’s husband is in the Marines down there, so I just drove down to visit a couple of months ago and I just love the relaxed, beach vibe there. If you haven’t been to Torrey Pines, you should definitely check it out next time you are down there! It looks similar to the photos you took on the cliffs, and is absolutely beautiful! I have a post about it on my page! I look forward to reading more about your trip 🙂

    […] have been getting a lot of wear out of my navy, suede trench lately. I wore it while we were in San Diego and back at home recently because of the slightly warmer temps. The wrap trench is such a […]
