So, I Was In a Funk All Day

But then, Matt got an unexpected time off, and just after Valentine's Day, he and I are headed to San Diego.

Which means, San Diego Zoo, whale watching, possibly a trip to wine country (or, more likely, Tijuana). And even though I know it's not going to be 90°, the fact that it's not going to be snowing and grey is enough to get me jumping around the room.

(PS? I haven't been to a zoo in at least 7 months. And I <3 zoos. So I am SUPER excited about the zoo. And the whale watching. Also, did I mention that we're going to go to the zoo and go whale watching??? I can't wait!)

Hello! I have been reading your blog for a while, you totally make me smile... I just wanted to give you a hot tip on the whole "wine country" thing: Maurice Car'rie Vineyard & Winery in Temecula, CA (north of San Diego). They sell the BEST Baked Brie in Sourdough Bread! You can snag a bottle of wine and a loaf of bread and have a picnic on the front lawn! Fan-tas-tic! My husband and I live about 30 min away and we do this once or twice a year! Also, check out Wilson Creek they have the most fantastic Almond Champagne... Hope that helps!

The San Digo zoo is the only one that can hold a candle to the St. Louis zoo, except the St. Louis zoo doesn't cost $22. (Price circa 10 years ago.)

I also live in San Diego and I agree whole heartedly with Jo's suggestions. Maurice Car'rie is arguably the best winery in Temecula. Besides the baked brie you must try the pineapple champagne and the Heather's Mist (it's a blended white wine). I'm usually a red wine person but I LOVE the fruity white wines at MC. Have fun in Temecula. It's gorgeous year round.

If you love zoos then you should check out the Wild Animal Park in Escondido. Totally fun to see the animals in a more wild habitat. You can usually get a zoo/wild animal park discount ticket. Both places are run by the zoo.

PS - Don't forget your flip flops. We were cold last week but they say we'll get back to our normal 65-70 degree "winter".

PSS - Hi Jo. I work 30 min south of Temecula. So I'm thinking that you live close to where I work. Cool.

Marcia, as much as I love you, I am currently seething with jealous hateful rage... You will be visiting fun places and such while I am languishing in middle america... UGH.

Lynn said...

I am so freakin' jealous right now. You travel so much! I can't even remember being in San Diego, although I know that I've been there once . . . a very long time ago.

You know what? When Matt becomes a rich and famous lawyer, your posts are going to changes from "we're going to San Diego" to "we're going to Rome" or "we're going to Tokyo."

You should check out the Portland Zoo. It's not nearly as big or cool as the San Diego Zoo, but there are a lot of steep hills and precarious stairs.

What was my point again?

Ooooh! Sounds like a delightful trip! :)
