To celebrate dh’s birthday, I decided to surprise him with a weekend getaway to San Diego, California. We had a lovely dinner Friday night at the Red Marlin restaurant, then Saturday we spent the day doing THIS. That is not us in the video, but that’s how we spent our Saturday morning. Pretty darn good way to spend a Saturday, I think. 🙂 If you’ve never had a chance to do an encounter with a Beluga Whale, I highly recommend the experience. They are wonderful, timid creatures that deserve our respect and our consideration.
I didn’t realize how badly I needed a change of scenery until we got out to San Diego. I have to admit I could’ve used another four weeks on the water. The place was amazing. As a flight attendant, I’ve been to San Diego a LOT and spent the night there more times than I can count, but this was the first time I ‘really saw’ the place. It has so many wonderful areas that would be great to live in. Like most of California, San Diego isn’t cheap. You pay for that beautiful property. But boy is it tempting. Coming home was a bit of a let down, which is sad considering we live in a nice area. It did give us time to clear our heads. We decided we need these long getaway weekends more often.
What do you do to clear your head? How do you getaway from it all?
