During our time in San Diego, a must see for Steve was the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier. So off we went on a morning out exploring the Midway. We had already visited the Iowa in San Pedro, so I was kinda expecting the same sort of thing.
It was much larger than the Iowa, with so much information. It was super interactive too. I think it’s very well presented. There’s also gorgeous views!

Overall, I think I preferred the Iowa because the Midway was so overwhelming. It’s just gigantic and an information overload. Worth a visit though!
After, we headed over to In N Out for lunch. It’s a must have when on the West Coast because the burgers are cheap and dreamy. I love their branding too, retro and with palm trees!
It was after lunch that we headed over to what was soon to become one of my favourite places on the planet, La Jolla.

We parked in town for $7 (bargain!), and headed towards the cliff top.
We were soon greeted with sea lions chatting to one another and sunbathing. I will never tire of seeing animals in the wild and it felt lovely to watch them hang out.
We then left Phil’s Dad at the top, whilst we climbed down the side of the cliff (we literally used a rope), towards the water.
It was incredible. Oozing with natural beauty, charm and wildlife.

We saw crabs, fish and of course those wonderful sea lions. There’s lots of water activities going on too – swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.
The beautiful coves reminded me of the Greek islands, especially as the water was so clear and warm.
I loved watching the waves crash in around us. It was truly magical.
They say that people never forget how you make them feel, and La Jolla made me feel love. That warm, fuzzy feeling of excitement and happiness. Contentment and joy. That feeling that nothing else matters. There in my time at La Jolla, I felt true love.
We then climbed back up the cliff and found Steve on a bench at the top near a nice coastal path, which we walked all the way along, soaking up the beautiful views.
Poor Steve is terrified of heights, so insisted that we walk back via the road.
La Jolla has been such a highlight of our adventure and I hope I get to go back one day.
In the evening we went to Seaport Village, which is another gorgeous place, and are at the Cheesecake Factory. I love the food there and very much enjoyed my Hershey’s cheesecake!
