Carlsbad, San Diego and La Jolla

In March 2009, my friends and I had a neat weekend exploring Carlsbad, San Diego and La Jolla. Our first stop was at the flower fields in Carlsbad.

Who knew there were so many varieties of poinsettias???

Next, we got lost in the Sweet Pea flower maze. It was fun!

If you are ever in Southern California during March, you really should stop and check out the flower fields! Here's a link to their site.

After spending about 2 and a half hours walking through the flower fields, we drove into San Diego and spent some time relaxing at the Hotel Coronado. I first "discovered" The Dell when I was 20 and I fell in love instantly.

My buddy, Dave, has some great shots of the hotel on his site. Click here.

Then it was time for dinner but we also wanted a Margarita so we found a place in Old Town and placed our drink order.

Holy smokes, those Margaritas were EMMENSE!! But more importantly, they were GOOD. Y'all know what I'm talking about!

Guess what? We never made it to dinner! We called it a night and went back to our hotel to pass out, LOL. If you are wondering where you can get one of those Margaritas, visit the Coyota Cafe & Cantina.

After breakfast, we checked out of our hotel and then proceeded to our next stop - La Jolla. Yes, Virginia, it is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

I am always amazed when I find references to President Lincoln in unexpected places!

Are you tired yet? We've still got more to see.

Talk about wind blown!

I wish I was there now! Of course, I can't end this post without giving you a link to information on La Jolla, right?

Connie -- I thought that margarita might be from Casa de Pico in Old Town -- is that restaurant still there? The pics are terrific! I also enjoy your comments on Gorillas Don't Blog!

Gojira: Thanks for the comments! From what I can tell, Casa de Pico is no longer there.
