Day 24

We wanted to get a feel for San Diego today. This is pretty high on our list of places we'd like to live or at least from what we've heard. And everyone has made it clear that they would come and visit or maybe just move here with us. So, it seemed important to give it a good look. We started off by walking around the gaslamp district a bit. It is where our hotel is at. It's a good feel, but we surprised that there weren't more people. We headed to a local sandwich joint for lunch. The Cheese Shop...I great a great pork loin sandwich. But, we also found out from our waitress that the place is hopping in the summer, but can be slow this time of year. After that we decided to head down to the beach. I mean, it's definitely a selling point. And it didn't disappoint. It was very beautiful. Ethan was dismayed that he didn't have his swim trunks, but it didn't keep him down, he headed right for the water in his shorts. So, while Adeana and I talked for a bit, he was having a blast in the ocean for over 60 minutes. It was a high of about 69 today. We were hoping for a little warmer, but I still thought it was still pretty comfortable down at the ocean. Adeana was her usual cold, but whatever :-) After that we drove around the beach neighborhoods, not exactly where we would want to live, but we wanted to get an idea. The houses are simple and almost no yards, but still look really nice and you can just tell they are probably expensive. One of Adeana's friends had recommended a few neighborhoods to check out, so we got a dinner plan together, got Ethan dried off and headed out to keep perusing. We ended up in the Mission Hill and Hillcrest areas. The both seem like very cool areas. Lots of people, businesses and good energy. We ended our night at the Yog-art in Hillcrest. It sports a variety of soft serve yogurts, then you pick your toppings, and they charge by the ounce. We got three of them for $5.30 total. They also have board games there, so we played a game Jenga while eating our dessert. Lots of people came through while we were there. San Diego is unlike any other part of California I've ever been in. The people here are very surprising. Everyone we have encountered has been very friendly, down to earth, and helpful. Not to say we haven't seen a lot of people that don't look like anyone we know back home, but they are all very kind and willing to give you a few minutes. We're going to hang around tomorrow and see more of Hillcrest and the surrounding areas. We shall see...
