San Diego

San Diego is a Californian city close to the Mexican border.  As it is a coastal city everything here is absolutely beautiful, and I love it every time my work takes me there. Although there’s an airport in San Diego, I drove down from Los Angeles. IMG_2531

This was September so it wasn’t very cold so I represented Sarojini Nagar with a skirt I bought from there and paired it up with a white backless top from Bershka. The drive from Los Angeles to San Diego is about an hour long. The drive is smooth and the houses build around the coast look right out of a Hollywood movie. So mostly I daydreamed about living there!
The lighthouse museum is one of the top sightseeing places to see in San Diego. We navigated our way to the museum which as the name suggests was an old lighthouse. The history of how the lighthouse used to operate in the old times and now was explained in an easy, pictorial fashion. Never thought I would be so engrossed learning about a lighthouse!
This captivating lighthouse is right on top of a small lush hill. There are rocky hills all around and stairs connect it to the ocean. The sky and water melt into one continuous hypnotic blue. We stayed here for about 45 minutes and clicked lots of pictures.

We ate till our stomachs hurt and headed to La Jolla Cove, a surfer’s paradise and home to many sea seals. The park next to it was full with families having a picnic, playing volleyball or just kicking it back with a book.IMG_2560IMG_2492As we reached the beach we could hear and smell the sea seals from a distance. Sea Lions or Sea Seals are these giant lazy sea animals, the biggest one I saw was as big as a TATA Nano, I was told that he was the alpha male. they were so adorable!
I could see a lot of surfers navigating the wave like it’s child’s play as we walked around the sea coast. It’s one of the things I have always wanted to learn.
After soaking up the sun for some time, we grabbed a coffee and headed back to Los Angles. A day well spent.
