San Diego Trip


Made a short trip to San Diego over the July 4th weekend. Drove down on Friday and reached early enough to stop at Del Mar beach for some time. It was a small beach but was wonderful and the water felt great. Perfect for a break after the long drive. We had dinner at a cousin's place and walked across the road to the park to watch the fireworks. It was Karthik's first fireworks display and the sounds scared him initially. But he grew used to them soon and enjoyed the rest of the show. Spent Saturday at SeaWorld. Caught Shamu's Believe, Dolphin Discovery, Pets Rule! and Cirque de La Mer shows. Kavya and Karthik had fun playing in the Bay of Play play area after the day cooled down a bit. Went to the Wild Animal Park on Sunday. A lot of walking but since we went early enough, the animals were active and we caught most of them in action. The Discovery Station with activities for the kids, an animal game show and Lorikeet Landing, where the kids could feed nectar to the pretty birds, provided some nice breaks. Went down to the San Diego harbor after that for a nice view of the skyline and the oceanside park there was a nice bonus for Kavya and Karthik. Drove back on Monday.

A few photos from the trip can be seen here.
