I look fondly back on our trip to San Diego.  Ysabela and I had a great time.  I was surprised at how dog friendly the whole city is.  Hotels and other businesses set out bowls of fresh water to quench the thirst of promenading pooches.  Our hotel (Hotel Z) even provided dog bone treats.


Hotel Z–dog friendly!

We definitely enjoyed the shopping as well.  I got to see things that we do not have in our small rural town.  I love Frida Kahlo, and I was wishing I had more “fun money” with me.

I would love to have a few more days in San Diego, and I’m sure Bela would agree.



Since arriving in San Diego on Thursday, Bela and I have seen Old Town (with Lila), explored a bit of the Gaslamp Quarter and had some great meals.  Sunday after I went to the convention center one last time, we ate brunch at the Broken Yolk Café.  The waitress (Hannah) was super and the food was abundant.  I couldn’t finish it all.  They have a challenge meal of a 12-egg omelet with four biscuits and more that you have to eat in one hour.  By yourself.  It costs $26.99, but the bragging rights might be worth it.  (Not to me, though!)

Sparks Gallery was right across the street from Hotel Z, so we had to see everything in there before we left.


I didn't know Bela was stalking me.
