Memorial Day weekend in San Diego

Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend!

MGG and I spent the weekend away in San Diego.  A little rest was in order..
We had a wonderful time exploring different areas of the city.  The picture above is our view from lunch on Coronado Island, looking back at downtown San Diego.  Beautiful!

We started off the weekend at Powerhouse Beach in Del Mar.  Del Mar is a quaint little beach town south of Los Angeles near San Diego.  This has got to be one of the best parks I've been to.  Look at this place!  It was so wonderful hanging out here for the afternoon.  The weather was a cool 70 degrees, with a light wind.  Just perfect!

On to our hotel located on Shelter Island, which has a Marina on one side, and the Harbor shoreline on the other side.  Here's our view from our room.  Gorgeous!

A beautiful park next to the shoreline.

A view from Shelter Island looking at Coronado Island and downtown San Diego in the background.  The Naval base is visible as well.

Off to Balboa Park we went to enjoy some of the museums there.  First off was the Space and Air Museum.  Some wonderful plane there.

After that we started walking through the park and boy was it crowded!  Thinking that it was just the holiday weekend we discovered that they were having an International food festival.  Booths with food from all sorts of countries were set up and selling like crazy!  We saw food from Peru, Hungry, France, India, Pakistan, Greece, Spain, Denmark, Belgium, Philippines, you name was there!  So much fun!  We sampled a lot as you could believe and enjoyed comparing the different flavors from the different countries.  Would you believe that we saw at least 10 variations of Baklava??  So delishhh!  Unfortunately we didn't stop to take pics during the feast...hard to sample and snap understand.

So as this is a food blog, I can't forget to show you some luscious food....!

We had lunch yesterday on Coronado Island at the Village Pizzeria.  We sat outside and had a wonderful view of the bay and downtown San Diego in the background.  Here's a wonderful view of the aircraft carrier, Midway.

We shared a Pear and Gorgonzola Salad...I have to make this soon!  We also tried one of their famous pizzas.  Heaven!  A light and crispy crust, with a spicy sauce, and fresh toppings.  Try this restaurant out if you are ever in San Diego.

We had an excellent time in San Diego.  We'll definitely be back soon!
