Spring Break Get Away. Aaah, it was bliss. I think it was the first time in months that I truly relaxed. It probably helped that I had a serious cold/flu, asthma, sinus virus that I've been fighting for over a month that got worse the day we left. My husband bought me some Nyquill and I had a wonderful nightcap of that every night and was asleep before 9. Wow! I wonder what they put in it. It was a tad chilly in Southern California, but that didn't deter us. Luckily, the sun was shining the day we went my favorite beach on Coronado. It was a successful, beachcombing day. I found two sand dollars and a beautiful piece of sea glass.
We stopped in at Seaport Village. We were walking along the promenade and noticed these beautiful exotic birds. As soon as we walked up, the man put two birds on Taylor's shoulders. I'm so glad that I had my camera out!
I wanted to tour the Midway, but we arrived a little too late. I am crazy about the solider/nurse statue. It reminds me of the movie Pearl Harbor. It's gigantic!
After leaving the harbor, my dear husband drove us to Paper Tales, an incredible Scrapbook and Paper Arts store in Point Loma. Last time I saw Michelle and Helle, they were still in the planning stages of the store. I was thrilled to find Helle teaching in the store. We had a short little reunion and then I got to shop. The store is just darling. I love all the vintage decor items. Look at the sweet little pink stove and the doll buggy. I wanted to take them home. I adore both Helle and Michelle and wish I could have spent more time with both of them. Just as we were leaving, Michelle pulled up so I got to see them both!
