At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.

Last weekend I enjoyed three days with my two college roommates in San Diego. RaeAnna is a travel nurse and is currently living in the Pacific Beach area so I flew to Las Vegas and then Ashley and I drove to San Diego together. We walked along the Pacific Ocean, visited Coronado and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, saw Weezer in concert and watched the sunset from a rooftop restaurant in La Jolla.

How does the line go? "You never know how many friends you have until you have a beach house." Completely true! We're already planning our trip for next year.

My cute pup-pup welcome in Las Vegas. Ashley's dogs Paisley and Parker.

Gate leading to RaeAnna's beachy apartment.

Walking just a few blocks from her apartment to the Pacific Ocean.

Dipping my toes.

Beautiful sunset dinner at George's in La Jolla.

Waited in line for breakfast with all of the surfers at Kono's in Pacific Beach.

Ate aforementioned breakfast beach-side.

Went shopping and saw this cute sign - if it was smaller I would have bought it!

View of downtown San Diego from Coronado.

Visited the Hotel del Coronado or as the locals call it, "The Del."

Winnings at Del Mar.

Love Coronado and the weekend Dan and I spent at "The Del" was so delightful. What a great little place to getaway. No summer is complete without a beach weekend!
