Holiday Decorations: Balboa Park, The Zoo and Extraordinary Desserts

1 Jan

I’ve been meaning to post these since they were taken last Christmas Eve and days after. I found a parking spot right in The Prado lot and while we still can pulled in to take a quick walk through the Botanical Gardens before they closed for the day. Lovely. Also went by at night and snapped some, and the San Diego Zoo lights too, very cool! We live in a wonderful city! On our way out we stopped at Extraordinary Desserts for a Cream Cheese Brownie with overtones of coffee. Really yummy. Enjoy!

Foodie Day: New Mexico Cafe to Coronado Ends at Fillippis

31 Dec

We drove out to Logan Ave. to beat the fog and grab a bite. Las Quatro Milpas was way too crowded to stop so we headed a few blocks down to Newton and hit New Mexico Cafe La Dona, got some food to go and then drove Coronado before being swallowed up in the fog again. We ended the day with a pizza to go at Filippis, for pizza fotos check out this past post, BOMB PIZZA! Early nap day for sure. Enjoy!

Allen Road Walk on New Years Eve

31 Dec

Foggy weather opened to a sunny afternoon full of local sightseeing. We went out for a walk down the Allen Road Trail, named after the old Allen Dairy, located at Allen Rd. and Ft. Stockton Dr. Today was wet and lots of trees down but still a quick down and back up makes for a nice, brisk walk. Look for two swings, old military foundations and the cement remains from World War II gunnery, 1943. Next time we need to leave time for a “Famous” Apple Pancake at Ricky’s…Yum! Enjoy
