Window Seat: San Diego Babymoon, Day Three, 05.14.12

Several months ago, I did a weekly series on Stellar Path called The Window Seat, where I talked about my family’s various travels. I abandoned it, around the time that work just got too overwhelming, but I am picking it back up. I had talked about TWO days of our Babymoon to San Diego, (Day One, Day Two), and I am picking this feature back up with Day Three.

This post (along with all of the other San Diego posts that will follow) were actually written while in San Diego. I hope you enjoy this recap of our babymoon! Be warned – this is very photo heavy!

Breakfast was much the same. Good and very filling. This morning, they had raspberries. I can’t help it – apparently, I’m a fresh fruit dork.

View as we are leaving the hotel…

Since we had a cruise at 7:00, we decided to save Los Angeles for a day when we didn’t have to be back. We’re planning to go on Thursday; today, we decided to go to Last Exit Mall (aka Las Americanas Mall) about one mile from the Mexican border.

It was a pretty standard outlet mall, and I’m just not a shopper. However, I did get a $500 leather jacket from Wilson’s Leather for $149. I also purposely got one smaller than would fit now, to give me some motivation for weight loss for the winter.

On our way back, we stopped at Tuna Harbor (very close to the hotel) and ate at the Fish Market. We sat outside, right above the water. It was a little chilly, but the food was amazing! Tina got a lobster roll; I got cod, prawn, and scallops “fish and chips.” It was amazingly good. We may very well go back for dinner some time.

We also did a bit of exploring around the restaurant. There was an exhibit set up for Bob Hope and a gigantic iconic statue of “the kiss” from WWII.

After leaving the restaurant, we came back to the hotel and laid out by the pool. A few brave souls tried to swim, but we just enjoyed the sun for about an hour. I got a little pink; Tina got burned. Apparently, pregnant women burn easier than non-pregnant women. Who knew?

I napped, and we went to Hornblower Tours for our Sunset Cruise. This was the only stupid part of the day; we went to the address on our cruise tickets, 1066 North Harbor Drive. We parked about a quarter of a mile away. Well, it turns out that we actually had to walk down to 1800 North Harbor drive to board the ship. Rather than move the car, we walked the difference. The lady at the ticket booth said she didn’t understand why they didn’t print the right address on the ticket voucher and didn’t know how to fix it. (I dunno – maybe a sign on the ticket booth at 1066 that that is NOT where you board the ship. *sigh* Regardless, we got on the ship.)

It was a very fun experience. We were fed a three course meal, salad, steak with potatoes and broccolini, and a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake with a cookie crust. We literally just cruised around the harbor, but it was a lot of fun. We also got some amazing photos. It was a three hour tour (snicker), but it felt a little long. By 9 o’clock, we were ready to go. (It went ‘til ten.)

Still, we had a good time.

We’re both dead tired. Hopefully, we’ll wake up refreshed for a fun day tomorrow at Sea World.
