Long time no see everyone, I’ve been trying to hold on to summer’s last bits of sun in La Jolla, San Diego the past week. I’m no stranger to SD, however I haven’t been back in what seems like forever so this was a fun trip to not only relax but also to spend some time with our friend Shelli and her family. @Twelfthknight and I stayed in La Jolla’s Hyatt Regency, and if you make a trip out here I would highly recommend this location, just 20 minutes north of the airport and super close to the beach and fun eateries.
Needless to say, we spent an incredible amount of time stretched out in our cabana and in the pool soaking up that vitamin D. Hopefully my tan stays around for another few weeks into Fall *fingers crossed. Speaking of fingers, yes I am engaged! For my Instagram community, you were the first to know a while ago, but yes…@Twelfthknight and I are now engaged. If you’re not following @shoes_and_sashimi on Instagram, I wish you would because I just can’t keep up blogging like I used to. Besides, it’s a way to see what I’m up to each day, so don’t be shy!
Below you will find some of my swim and sun favorites used and worn this past week. P.S…of all the coffee shops in SD, my favorite has to be Communal Coffee which also acts as a flower shop.
Maybe you’re looking to get away to San Diego one of these days? I would come back to La Jolla’s Hyatt Regency in a heart beat.
Sometimes I feel like I’m always searching for some resolve or peace of mind. Maybe I’ve always been restless. Not sure what I’m always searching for exactly, but I know that to be completely content with oneself and where they’re at in life is quite rare. Striving for more but better yet figuring out how to get there is always on my mind, day in day out. If you’re anything like me, it’s exhausting am I right?
A few days in Paso Robles (2 hrs north of LA) with the furbaby and @Twelfthknight helped me reach some calm finally in a long time. Every dip in our hotel pool, a morning tour of Hearst Castle, and some really nice time spent wine tasting and eating…can’t get more relaxing than that.
Hearst literally built his dream. And so will I, one way or another.
As always, thank you for reading and keep striving :)
Last stop on our tour is Cabo San Lucas, and to be honest…it’s my favorite out of the three :D @Twelfthknight and I spent hours in the clear water of Medano Beach, a straight shot to El Arco de Cabo (those monolithic rock formations.) Hacienda Beach Resort is beautiful and I highly recommend coming here for the beach scene. Cabanas, sun, jet ski’s glass bottom boats, fish, sand, and crystal clear water…what more do you need?
I loved our time here on the open sea, it was the most relaxed I’ve felt in a long time. I do think we’ll be booking with Princess early next year for our next adventure. If you would like to book a trip, you can use the link found here.
Hope you all had a nice weekend, Happy Halloween everyone! Sharing with you, our next Port of Call: Mazatlan, an older and significantly larger beach city. We got off the ship at 7am and decided to explore a sleepy beach named Isla de la Piedra before we went into the city proper. To get to Isla de la Piedra, we walked a block and a half from the ship to a little dock full of water taxis. We hopped on and jetted off for about 15 minutes until we reached this beautiful but somewhat ghostly quiet beach that was the Isla. I also learned that Mazatlan is iconic for their thatched roofs which I loved to sit and stand under :D Here, we spent the morning walking through the water and sand until it was time to go back for lunch.
*At this hour, we had the entire beach to ourselves. It was a little eery, but in a beautiful way.
After our morning here, we went back across the water to the city where we ate at Panchos which overlooks the beach. Our recommendations would be to order the red snapper and the shrimp ceviche, delicious!
