San Diego, California

It's been a few weeks since our trip now, but beautiful San Diego still deserves its own post. We LOVED this area! When we moved to California, I had imagined clear blue skies, great weather & amazing beaches. The latter I've found a little disappointing in NorCal - yes, the beaches here are beautiful but they are FREEZING cold, even in summer.

For the second half of our summer road trip, we stayed in downtown San Diego, but spent a day exploring the beautiful coastal region of La Jolla. I could live here. Seriously. I finally found my perfect Californian beach - with a cute little cove, clear water, seals & snorkeling galore, it was stunning.

One of our key reasons for visiting San Diego was to take the boys to the world famous San Diego Zoo. The zoo was definitely impressive - it was by the far the largest and cleanest zoo I've ever been to, but I wasn't blown away. Still, it was fun spending some time walking around (up and down all the massive hills mind you) and checking out all the different animals, some of which I'd never seen before.

After splashing around in Palm Springs and a trip to Legoland, San Diego was the perfect ending to our first holiday as a family of four. I wonder where the next trip will take us.... I'm thinking east coast?!?!
