SoCal Christmas 2017: Day 12 San Diego - Mission Bay


A foggy day today!

The kids voted to stay close to home and beach time!

Breakfast was the usual toast and yoghurt. J went out to get us a coffee. It was slow going this morning.



We firstly drove up to near Belmont park, walked along the boardwalk to the end of Mission Bay and walked back through the amusement park.

Neither child was bothered about going on the wooden rollercoaster nor anything else! They reckoned the 30 second ride was not worth $6! Nothing would persuade them!



We went back to Lil Farmer for lunch to get those veggies in!



F then had rolled ice cream from the ice cream shop next door.



Made to order!

O had a chocolate and banana smoothie!



Once lunch was digested we went down to the beach.

The sun was shining a bit when we arrived. The waves were better than usual!



I went and got hot drinks and then read my kindle.



However the sun disappeared and you could see the fog forming in the distance.



Even the pier was engulfed. The kids were happy to stay in though. J, on the other hand, was battered and bruised. Not easy being 50!

Once we had headed back and showers were had, we went back out to Mary' Tack shop. F was in her element but we got away with just a reduced rain jacket for riding!

On our way back we picked up a takeout from Chipotle - a rice and bean bowl for me!



I checked us in online. We are seated in a four across the middle and no seats to move us to. Not ideal as we would prefer a window seat but not at the prices BA wanted to charge for pre-booking!

We then walked down to another ice cream shop which did cookies or brownie (or both) ice cream sandwiches! The kids both had one but J and I declined!

J went for a haircut to avoid faffing around on Saturday whilst the rest of us went back. I had done the washing this morning so packed two suitcases. Both underweight.

Need to pack the last tomorrow as well as the soft bag with the soggy wetsuits.

A good last day. I'm with the kids - $6 for a wooden rollercoaster wouldn't be for me at all - I love rollercoasters but not wooden ones. The rolled ice cream looks interesting and the ice cream waffles look very tasty indeed. Shame about your seat allocation on the plane, but again I have to agree I wouldn't pain BA the prices they charge to pre-book.

Shame it was foggy. The waffles look good. Has Picasso managed to squeeze in the case! Safe flight home.

Ah that's a shame about the fog but still a great day and love the ice creams that you got. the beaches have looked lovely in all your pics
You did well with the cases being underweight - wonder if you might pick up better seats when you get to the airport ?

The seats were fine in the end!

The kids really were not bothered about the rollercoaster - not exciting enough to make it worth it!

We managed - at least it didn't rain!

We are quite light packers and we didn't buy that much! I think we could have added at least another 20kg in weight to the cases and still been under!

I must learn how you manage to pack so lightly - Ive never succeeded at that!

Think you did the right thing in staying out of the water and reading your kindle, as being battered and bruised by the waves isnt my idea of fun - especially just in time for the journey home.
