Farewell San Diego

image

San Diego. A city filled with adventure, history, scenery, and most of all – great memories! After 10 years, a T.W.O. will be moving from San Diego. These past years has been great in that lots of life time friendships have been made, success stories for the books, wonderful opportunities and a decade filled with happiness. San Diego will be missed, but will be visited very often. If you have never visited San Diego – this is one city you will need to put on the list. Padre and Charger games, Del Mar horse races, beach days, pretty sunsets, delicious restaurants, scenic hikes – it was all experienced. Here is just a re-cap of the past 10 years… Cheers to memories and new beginnings!

Del Mar Weekend

image

T.W.O. loves spending their weekends in Del Mar. This past weekend, we enjoyed morning runs, fresh baked goods, farmers market and home cooked gourmet dinners. Thank you Del Mar for a wonderful weekend!

 T.W.O. started Saturday morning off with a long run along the coastline of Del Mar. Our halfway point led us to this beautiful scenery. You would never guess it was winter based on the amount of surfers out in the ocean or the people in light jackets!

Next stop was to a local, family owed bakery called Village Mill Bread Company. The bakery is filled with a variety of organic breads, pastries, donuts, jams, nut butters, desserts and coffees! So whether you need bread for sandwiches, an appetizer, a meal or your sweet tooth- Village Mill has it! Their cinnamon rolls and challah are outstanding- T.W.O. would highly recommend these two! And their coffee is from Bird Rock Coffee Company, which is out of this world. Don’t miss out and stop by Village Mill Bread Company if you are visiting or live in the Del Mar area!

T.W.O. absolutely loves farmers markets. Whether they are oversees or in the United States, we will never pass up visiting a farmers market. This past Saturday, we decided to go to the Del Mar Farmers Market, which happens every Saturday from 12-4pm. It’s on the smaller side compared to other San Diego famers markets, but definitely does not lack on quality! From produce, fresh seafood, flowers, nuts, authentic cuisines- Del Mar Farmers Market has it! Just make sure to bring cash!

To complete a great weekend, T.W.O. decided to take in the beautiful views Del Mar has to offer. Looking north, you see the coastline leading up to Orange County; looking south, you see the shores of La Jolla. It’s so picturesque- we have not complaints!

San Diego County Favorites

Del Mar Beach

Del Mar is one of the best beaches in San Diego County.  It is a great place to bring families, friends and visitors on those hot summer days.  Being in a residential area, the beach is lined with beach houses that are nice to look at while taking a mid-day stroll.  T.W.O. enjoys bringing a picnic lunch, our paddleball set and a great book to Del Mar beach.

Claire’s on Cedros Bakery & Café

Claire's_On_Cedros_Solana_Beach_CA_92075_SDSC - 28

If you are looking for a great place to grab a coffee and pastry, a delicious sit-down breakfast or a tasty lunch…Claire’s on Cedros in Solana Beach is the place to go.  Not only is the food fresh and amazing, the building is the only LEED Platinum certified building in San Diego. The atmosphere is casual and inviting for all ages.

Petco Park

SD_73927515_580

Baseball has been apart of T.W.O.’s life since we were born.  We have been to many baseball fields in our life, and Petco Park is in the top five favorite stadiums list.  Located in the center of downtown San Diego, the stadium has spectacular views and offers many amenities for families and young adults.  During the summer months after certain games, there are country concerts.  T.W.O. had the chance to go see Dierks Bentley.  Yee haw!

Del Mar Horse Races

 

Opening Day at the Del Mar Horse races is such a fun day.  Sun dresses, big hats, linen suits, fedoras, jockeys and horses…who wouldn’t like this?  Place your bets now because this is the only track where the surf meets the turf.

Board & Brew (Del Mar)

T.W.O. loves a good sandwich, so when we are headed to the beach we always stop by Board & Brew to pick up lunch.  Turkey, avocado with shredded lettuce on squaw bread is a favorite of T.W.O.  Board & Brew never disappoints!

Seagrove Park

Don’t want to go to the beach, but want to enjoy the great weather?  Seagrove is a great park that has quite the view.  T.W.O. enjoys bringing picnic lunches, our family and our dog Libby!  It’s a great place to people watch, relax and enjoy the incredible views.  If you time it right, you might even be an “uninvited guest” at a wedding!

Rimel’s Rotisserie (Del Mar)

Rimels is a favorite dinner spot for T.W.O.  With fresh food that is made from scratch, T.W.O. enjoys the wok bowls and the potstickers.  Rimels offers a great environment for small or large parties.  There is a big farm fresh table in that back for big group celebrations. If your table isn’t ready, don’t worry because the fire-pits and the outdoor sitting area makes the wait well worth it!
