San Diego

Filed under: Roadtrip — Matt Stamplis @ 1:46 pm

After fleeing from the wind/rain of Northern California and San Francisco we managed to finally do some sight-seeing in San Diego. We went to Ocean Beach and took Yogi on a walk on Dog Beach. It was nice to finally get out of the RV and relax a little bit. It’s finally starting to feel like a vacation!

In the afternoon we decided to head to the zoo. It was an OK zoo: there were a few nice exhibits but of course, the best were the pandas. One of the pandas gave birth a few months ago but the baby is too small for viewing still. But we got to see some of the other pandas. They pretty much just sit there and eat bamboo all day. Kind of funny!

A hungry panda!

We spent our first night off the road at Mission Gorge Regional Park near San Diego. It’s a very nice park with a great visitor center and even some rock climbing. Of course, it was too wet to climb so we went on a nice walk through the gorge.

Mission Gorge: rainy 😦

Before leaving, we heard that we could see some seals at the Children’s Cove in La Jolla. This is a small protected beach that was created for children to play in. But, the local seals decided they liked it so they took it over from the children. So now everyone comes here to see the seals! Trying to find parking for the RV near here was a nightmare!
