Travels :: SoCal Recap

Last month we spent a little over a week in southern California visiting friends and family.  With stops in San Diego, Orange County, and Visilia.  We had the best time lounging in the sun, playing in the sand, and feasting on some delicious eats.   

Making some new friends with the beached sea lions in La Jolla.

Of course no trip to San Diego would be complete without a trip to the zoo.  And we had to check out the panda exhibit.

The little Man's first beach and ocean experience.  He loved chasing after the waves despite the cold Pacific Ocean temperatures.

We made a pit stop in Temecula to check out a few wineries.  Our first stop was Falkner Winery.  They have the best views of Temecula valley and while we were there we picked up a bottle of their luscious lips (both white and red varieties).  The name is a bit ridiculous but it goes down oh so smoothly, and I can't wait to make sangria with the red.  Our next stop was Wiens Cellars, which is the perfect place for a picnic.  We ended up with a bottle of their Sangiovese

Other notable eats:  We had the best ahi poke since we were in Hawaii, at Bear Flag.  They have the freshest and incredibly tasty fish tacos too!  We also sampled all the varieties of doughnuts at Side Car.  My favorite had to be the butter & salt or the malasadas.  We also had the delectable Earl Grey Tea pie from The Pie Hole in LA, trust me you'll want to try this!
