This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
Now I’ve finally seen the sea lions in La Jolla. It was such a wow-experience. I don’t think I’ve ever even seen them at a zoo before. But that was in the afternoon. In the morning me and my mom sat down with my computer and booked everything for the big roadtrip. It took many hours but at last at 2pm everything was done and we are ready to leave on Thursday evening.
First we are going to Las Vegas and Grand Canyon combined in a $100 tour. So we have two nights in Las Vegas and a tour from there to Grand Canyon South Rim. That’s a three day tour and we will go back to San Diego on Sunday just to stay the night at the house. From Monday morning we have a rental car and we will drive up to San Francisco along Highway 1. We are gonna stay in SF 3 nights and while we’re there we will go to Yosemite National Park for one day. We have also planned on seeing the Redwood and maybe Alcatraz, we’ll see about tickets when we get there, online they’re sold out :(. Back to LA on Thursday to spend the night there and see a few things there before driving back to Carlsbad on Friday. It’s gonna be so fun to see everything and after we still have some days here in San Diego. I’m really excited! $1300 for everything is a reasonable price.
At 3pm we drove down to La Jolla. It was amazing to see the sea lions lying there on the cliffs like dead seals. I’m thinking about going back to snorkel there, that would be cool! There were also a lot of pelicans and squirrels. I know they are pests, but they are cute! When we had walked a long time along the water we decided to return to the car and when we did we saw dolphins out in the water. There were a lot of them! And I saw one jump high above the water again. Unfortunately mom missed it because she was taking pictures but I guess we will see plenty of jumping dolphins tomorrow at Sea World.
We had dinner at Stone Brewing in Escondido. The food was really good, don’t know about the beer since I was driving. It’s really nice atmosphere there and I kinda wished we would have gone a little later when it was dark. They have a big garden outside where you can sit down amongst a lot of lights. Last time I saw it, it was so pretty. But I had a nice time anyway. But I have to admit, I am exhausted, I’m not used to this tempo when it comes to doing things. I’m having fun though and can relax rest of the year :).
