We flew into San Diego late on Friday night. We stayed at a random hotel near the airport, and this was our few when we stepped out our door on Saturday morning. Woo! Look at those palm trees! We travel a lot, but mostly in the South. Before this trip the furthest west Travis had been was Colorado. It was fun to go somewhere so different from home.
We slept in late (Travis' one request for our vacation) so our first order of business was finding some lunch. I turned to the trusty Happy Cow app of course. It was crazy how many options there were!
We decided on the Loving Hut.
My favorite thing were these wontons! They were so so freaking good!
Travis was so happy already. He gets up at 4 am for work normally, so I think knowing he would get to sleep in for a week was the most exciting thing. Actual quote from this phone conversation "It's the bomb so far man!"
I got a BBQ sandwich and it was amazing! Loving Hut is a chain, but there aren't any near us. I wish there were! There were so many things on the menu that looked good. They were also playing this strange foreign video of some kind of teleconference? And every time I looked, the people were talking about pigeons materializing from no where.
We hadn't really made plans in San Diego so after lunch we headed to San Bernadino to meet up with some friends. The drive was blowing my mind. This probably sounds dumb, but the landscape was so alien to this southern lady. And the mountains!
Don't worry, I only let myself take a few photos from the car.
Oh yeah, we also stopped by a Whole Foods of course. We went to three while we were there! I can't resist. I always have to snoop through their Whole Body section and steal ideas for my department. We got these Beyond Meat spicey Chik'n stripes at the San Diego Whole Foods and they were so delicious. We talked about getting some more when we came back to San Diego for our return flight (we probably talked about them every single day), but they didn't have them that day! It was so dissapointing. I'm going to try and get Travis to recreate these.
