    Letzte Nacht + Great Maple

    July 26 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Unsere vorerst „richtige“ letzte Nacht in den USA war ganz gut. Juli und ich haben ziemlich gut geschlafen, auch wenn uns wieder „schwitzig“ war. Ich wurde in der Nacht zum 10 x mal von SKY Deutschland geweckt und neben uns wurde um 6 Uhr schon angefangen zu arbeiten, aber alles halb so wild. Nach dem Aufstehen haben wir uns direkt strandfertig gemacht. Heute gönnten wir uns nochmal ein „richtiges“ Frühstück.

    Kurz bei Google gesucht, wurde uns das Great Maple angezeigt. Vor Ort angekommen (nur ca 2 Meilen von unserem Airbnb entfernt) haben wir gelesen, dass dieses Diner eins unter den 100 besten in den USA ist. Zum Glück haben wir direkt einen Tisch bekommen. Das „Frühstück“ war ordentlich deftig. Kartoffeln, Spiegelei und Bacon für mich. Brot mit Avocado und „Scrambled egg“ (Rührei) für Juli. 55$ „später“ ging es „straight“ to the beach.

    Da wir wissen, was wir am Mission Beach haben, ging es auch heute wieder dorthin. 😊

    Alcazar Court

    May 14, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Our home for this week’s vacation. Wendy found us this amazing Air B&B. The cutest little bungalow located in the Hillcrest District. Possibly the best appointed Air B&B we’ve ever stayed in with everything you could possibly need to feel right at home. The Hillcrest District is conveniently located to everything it seems. Tons of amazing restaurants and bars all within walking distance.Read more

    San Diego Zoo

    May 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Haven’t been to the San Diego Zoo since a family vacation when I was young. We had a perfect day for our visit. Took advantage of the beautiful weather to hike the two miles there. We had two hours to explore before our two hour golf cart tour with the best tour guide ever, Becca. Got to go behind the scenes with the koalas and got to feed a kookabura named Matilda. Also, go to feed, not so successfully one of the giraffes. Saw a baby hippo that was stinkin’ cute. Also got to see the Galapagos turtles that were there when I first visited as a child. The docent told me that back then, I probably got to ride them. Wish my mom was still around to ask.Read more

    Yappy Hour

    May 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Joined Wendy and her pup “Skipper the Travel Dog” (who has his own Facebook page), and Bunny and her little man Andy for “Yappy Hour” on the patio at Moray’s in the Catamaran Resort. Beautiful views of Mission Bay. Walked over to catch the sunset beachside, but as Maxwell Smart would say, “Missed it by that much.”Read more

    Days Inn San Diego

    August 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Unsere Bleibe für die nächsten zwei Nächte. Haben von Los Angeles aus etwa 2 1/2 Stunden gebraucht aufgrund von Verkehr, konnten aber die meiste Zeit offen fahren. Die letzten 50 km dann geschlossen, weil es nur 23° waren. Dafür sternenklare Nacht inklusive Sternschnuppe. Der Weg führte die ganze Zeit am Meer entlang. leider war es schon dunkel, aber bei Tag ansonsten sicher noch schöner.Read more
