Coming Back to My Third Home
For my undergrad I went to San Diego State University, so San Diego was another home away from home. I look back and I’ve had some memorable moments in this city.
A couple of my roommates stayed in San Diego after graduation, so I always have a place to stay whenever I visit.
For those of you who’ve never been to San Diego, this city offers great beach communities, incredible Mexican food, and a nice nightlife.
When in Doubt, Go to La Jolla
For the small amount of time back with my friends, I wanted to make the most of it. La Jolla is no doubt my favorite spot to go, especially when wanting to creating content.
Our first stop was to visit the secret swing hanging alongside a La Jolla cliff. I know it may sound a little sketchy, but trust me it’s all good fun.
This is a nice remote spot where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds down by La Jolla Cove. Whether you’re swinging or just relaxing, there is a stunning view of La Jolla Shores and Torrey Pines in the distance.
The path to the swing is a one of the nicest walks in San Diego hands down.
The first part of the trail consists of a pathway with plants along both sides. Since is was Spring, almost Summer, the flowers were out in full effect.
The second part of the trail is along the cliff. The views are absolutely unreal. You can see stretches of San Diego beaches, kayakers paddling against the waves, and seals playing in the ocean.
My Favorite Beach in San Diego
The second stop of the day was the beach! When deciding which beach to go to in San Diego, 9 times out 10 I’ll name a beach in La Jolla.
Windansea Beach is my all time favorite because it reminds me of Hawaii in a way. The waves crash along the shore, and the water is pretty clear for a California beach.
This particular day the tide was the lowest I’ve ever seen. Windansea is the type beach where if the tide is really high, there is no beach or shore to lay on.
The water was also extremely clear! I could see just about everything. We weren’t really planning to get in because it wasn’t the warmest day, but I couldn’t resist.
The first plunge into the water took my breath away. The temperature was for sure in the 60s. I’m definitely spoiled with the warmer waters in Hawaii.
Overall, my 19 hours in San Diego were well spent with some great friends. Crazy to think we live in different states since I moved, so I definitely cherish the few moments I get to see them.
