Mark and I had a lot of fun this week in San Diego. We stayed at "The Lodge at Torrey Pines". It was really beautiful. We went on a lot of fun walks, ate a ton of great food and Mark golfed while I went to the Spa. It was very relaxing. We also took a couple of scenic drives up and down the coast. What a great place to live. I think our favorite thing to do was walk around the Torrey Pines State Reserve. There were several neat trails and a lot of greenery. We loved learning about the Torrey Pines themselves and took some great pictures. We had breakfast on the deck and had fun watching football. We loooooove San Diego!!!!!!!!

I can't believe it's been so long since I've been on the blog. Britt and I just finished a great trip to Seattle and Victoria BC. It was fun, but cold. We did a lot of walking and we went to Pike's Fish Market a few times. The highlight was the little French Bakery with Chocolate Almond Croissants. We split two of them and had to restrain ourselves the third day. We spent one day driving to UW and exploring University Village. We found Moleskin Planners which we had been on a mission to find. Then we drove out to the Williams where we were treated to the best dinner of Thai Wraps, grilled Salmon, Chicken, asparagus and a mango bowl for dessert. Fun Fun.
We flew, drove, monorailed, clippered, and flew in a float plane. Butchart Gardens in Victoria was a blast eventhough Britt wasn't too excited in the beginning. It was really pretty. We had High Tea at the Empress Hotel and were a little sticker shocked at the cost. But it was a lot of fun. We sat at a little table for two by the front windows and ate Cucumber Sandwiches, and a lot of cute pasteries. We had caffiene free Berry Berry Tea and laughed while I continuously dropped sugar cubes on the table. (Just couldn't hold on with the baby tonges). It was a fun trip!!! I loved it Britt.
