Sharon and David visit San Diego

We had the most wonderful time with Mom and Dad this past weekend. They were only here for about 4 and a half days, but we packed it full of fun and food, as you will see from the pics below.

Come visit us! We'll show you a good time here in SD!

We started with an AMAZING brunch at the famous Hotel del Coronado in the Crown Room. Not only was the room amazing, but below is just one of five giant tables holding every amazing food you could think of, sushi and chocolate fountain included. Mmmmmm.

Having dessert at our absolute favorite dessert spot, Heaven Sent. The Dutch Apple Pie is to die for!

I highly recommend the South Harbor Cruise with Harbor Excursions if you come to San Diego. You sail past all the Naval ships docked here in San Diego, second largest Naval port only to Norfolk, VA. They tell you all about each ship, how many sailors it holds, what its purpose is, when it got into port, where it was, etc. It is really fascinating and mind-boggling. This is a ship in "dry dock" being repaired. To see a ship this big completely lifted out of the water is amazing.

We took Mom and Dad to get THE BEST burrito, possibly the country's best, at Cuatros Milpas. It's a tiny little hole-in-the-wall that has been there for 70 years. The tortillas are like crepes made with lard. Mmmmmm. And the carnitas tastes like it has been braised in beer for a couple days. Oh my. I love this place.

Fun trying to take a timer picture with the dogs. Cal and Gracie were big Grandma and Grandpa Searles fans.

Humans only, finally.
