New Sights for Old friends

Today I greatly enjoyed bringing old friends to some of our favorite places around the greater San Diego coast.

Started with lunch at the Cliff Hanger Cafe- the best sandwich in town where you can watch hang gliders and para sailors jump off a cliff for fun and profit… with stunning ocean cliff views, to boot!

We then stopped by the World famous Torrey Pines Golf Course where we may or may not have picked up a gift for someone… I may have to pick up golfing, this is such a beautiful place!

Next place on the list was a short walking tour of the village of La Jolla and the water front from Shell Beach to The Cove…

We finished the day at Pizza Port in Solana Beach, stopping to admire the view at Fletcher Cove, first.

A new beer from Pizza Port for me- the Sea Side Stout on nitro. this was smooth and creamy, but not too heavy- under a 4% alcohol. I’d get it again.

Introducing old friends to one’s favorite places to visit make for a great day.

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
