Coronado Island // Last Day Of Our California Adventures

Well the good news is today marks the last day of our California trip, the bad news is it took me approximately two months post vacation to get to this point. Better late than never right? I hope you all enjoyed following along on our adventures and more than that, hope it has inspired some of you to consider Southern California for your next trip as I 100% believe you will not be disappointed. That is unless you take public transportation down to Tijuana which is what my sister decided to do when in sunny San Diego so yeah, I guess you could ruin it.

On our last and final day of vaca we decided to venture a short drive away from our hotel and go over to one of our favorite places, Coronado Island, where we rented bikes for the day. This place is truly like a fantasy land except real (ish) people live on it where they walk around, ride bikes, drive really expensive cars, drink fine juices, hang out on beaches, pick fresh flowers, and probably not poop. I don't know what you have to do [besides make a lot of money] to live there but I need to find an alternative and doable option. Alas, here are the last [million] photos from our trip! Enjoy! [pssst // I've gotten a few questions about what camera I used on our trip, and well - here she is. small enough you just throw it in your purse yet it takes awesome photos and can send them over to your phone automatically thanks to the built-in wifi]

After eating at a little pizza place outside while watching that massive Navy ship sail on by [which I must say was pretty awesome to see in person] and taking in the San Diego skyline, we made our way to the back of the island to Hotel Del Coronado for a little cocktail hour on the beach. This hotel is always one of my favorites to visit, reasons shown why below.

Of course all good things must come to an end, so we said peace out to Coronado and made our way back to Tower23 for some more cocktails and a walk down the street to the INCREDIBLE [seriously, it deserves all caps] Baked Bear for a pile of ice cream packed in between two homemade cookies. 

After not being able to breathe because of inhaling that sucker we got ready for our last night in paradise and strolled down to the beach to get a little sand on our feet and

It really was the prettiest of ways to end our trip...until next time Cali [t minus 16 days], it's been real. Thanks for your endless supply of sunshine, warmth, and happiness in my solo cup.



  1. Oh this looks so fun! I also really need that ice cream sandwich...like now.

  2. I am totally smitten with the homemade cookies you've posted above! They fit so luckily into sea-related post! I liked your active rest and you both look extremely delighted!

  3. Coronado is one of my absolute FAVORITE places!! We stayed at Glorietta Bay Inn a couple years ago (RIGHT across from The Del), and it was Heaven! We got all the perks of staying on Coronado without paying a huge price. I just love walking up and down those streets and popping in and out of places to get a drink and a bite to eat. Can't wait to go back. You look so pretty in these pics!! <3 xoxo

  4. I love reading posts about SoCal vacations! Glad you had a great time. I've lived in SoCal my whole life and have yet to make it to Hotel Del Coronado. I realize how unacceptable this is!

  5. Omg my husband and I leave Thursday to go to San Diego until Monday and I have nothing planned!! I have no idea what to do or where to go. If you have any suggestions or can give me some ideas I would love that!! I have been so busy that I havent even thought about an itenerary. Eeeeekkkkk. April_garcia1016@yahoo.com is my email! Look forward to hearing from you ��

  6. This is making me wonder why we didn't live in San Diego longer:( my husband was in the Navy and stationed there, can you imagine actually being ON the Navy ship instead of just watching from land?!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
