Coronado Love

Remember when I decided I really need to visit Coronado Island more?
Well, I’m following through with that decision. =)
We had the perfect weather in San Diego last weekend and Nadav and I decided to drive across the bridge and spend Saturday afternoon on Coronado Island.

We went to Clayton’s for brunch (love this place)

Clayton’s looks like a 1950s diner. I LOVE.

Half eaten food. I was so hungry that I forgot to take photos until we had eaten half of our food. Sorry yo ;)

After brunch we walked down to the Hotel Del. There's something about the Hotel Del that makes me feel like I'm on a cruise ship in the 1900s. The elegant atmosphere, architecture, design, and classiness of the hotel really makes me feel like I’m on the Titanic.

Nadav wanted to make sure I title this photo “I’ve got crabs”. Yup.

Isn't San Diego lovely? I'm so thankful to live in such a beautiful place =)
All this beautifulness makes me think of one of favorite movies, "Anchorman"...
"San Dieagooo, drink it in. It always goes down smooth"

Have a great day

I visit San Diego ALL the time (used to live in Riverside and 2 of my sisters live in San Diego) and yet, I don't think I've ever been to Coronado... I think I need to plan a trip there!

I only go to the beach and the Del when I go to Coronado. I need to check out some restaurants!

Nicole Marie said...

everytime i go there i say i need to go more too. it's the cutest little island/town/ whatever it's called

and how cool is that sand castle!

ps. theres a little burger place there. i have no idea what its called but pretty sure burger is in the name. and pretty sure all they have is burgers and fries. but it's a cute trendy place. try it and tell me how it is.. ya know if you can figure out what the heck i'm talking about and can figure out the name.

Hi Tammy! I'm new to your blog. San Diego looks so lovely! How nice it must be to have these views right around the corner. I've not been yet but am hoping to make it there in May. Need to bookmark this spot! :)

I adore vintage diners! If they didn't serve high calorie foods, I would eat at one for every meal! =P

My problem with Coronado is that I never want to leave!! I always tend to get lost in my thoughts and imagine myself living in one of those cute little houses with white picket fences...*sigh*

Jayme and Mendi said...
