That’s SoCal: Day 5

I had no clue what Day 5 in San Diego, California would be like. Most of our trip was chill and spur-of-the-moment. We had the urge to have a picnic in the park that morning, which didn’t work out. It didn’t go the way we wanted it to go, but it was still fun. I was with some of the most amazing people I know in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited, so how could I have a bad time? We walked to a park and just chilled out and talked. It was nice. I got to see so many beautiful things on the way there: homes, trees, flowers, etc. It felt like time was moving so slowly, which was great because I didn’t want the trip to end.

Slight tangent, I wanted to post an awesome picture of one of the houses near the park. It doesn’t have the address or house number. But it felt weird to possibly post it, so I just want you to know that there were some beautiful houses out there.

It was kind of weird seeing palm trees at a park. I’ve always associated them with beaches, but I quickly learned that that’s not the case, at least, in San Diego. I have this random obsession with them, which I think came from being excited about this trip.

We were blessed with another beautiful day, and I’m glad I got to spend time outside without worries.

We planned to have a bonfire at Mission Beach that night. I was so excited! I’ve always wanted to do that. It has always seemed like a fun thing to do. Little did I know, things wouldn’t go as planned.

My friends got on a roller coaster, and I decided to wait in the longest line ever for some ice cream. It was worth it though! I had the best Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream ever, so I couldn’t be mad. Do I wish the line was shorter? Yes. But I guess their ice cream is so good that they have a line like that. Waiting that long made me wonder how people wait in a line out the door at Georgetown Cupcake. Haha.

We headed to the beach with our bonfire supplies. I couldn’t wait to experience it. We searched and searched and searched. None of the bonfire spots were available. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t bummed. I had been looking forward to this experience all day. We stayed on the lookout for people leaving so we could get a spot. We put a blanket on the sand, kicked off our shoes, and enjoyed each others’ company. Eric and I tossed a baseball back and forth. There were great conversations. I was loving this night despite the people were being stingy with the bonfire spots.

Day 5 was an amazing day, and I was excited to see how Day 6 would be.
