dolphin-watching and bluff-strolling at sunset cliffs

August 28, 2013

I love hosting friends and family. We were so lucky to have so many people looking out for us while we backpacked — everything from strangers offering rooms in their houses to new friends lending us their cars — that once we came back to America, we were excited to pay it forward.

Now it’s been long enough in San Diego — more than 7 months! — that we have favorites and must-sees. My cousin, Runjini, has been visiting us since Sunday and together we’ve been essentially doing a Greatest Hits of San Diego Tour. It brought me back to the time three years ago when we visited San Diego and were totally, completely charmed.

But back to the point of this post. On Monday we headed to Sunset Cliffs, a coastal neighborhood in Point Loma with beautiful cliffs and coastal trails for gentle walks. There’s far less pedestrian traffic here than, say, La Jolla, and it’s an impeccable place to watch a sunset. Add to that the fact that we saw dolphins (we were too far to catch them on camera, but still!!!) and a seal sunning himself in the middle of the ocean!

It was a cloudy morning, but when you live in sun-drenched San Diego where the weather is perfect all the time, a little gloom feels a little nice sometimes.

P.S. I’m thrilled to be featured today on PAPER/PLATES, where I’m talking food, books, blogging and more. Check it out here!

      Thank you so much, Averie! I’m constantly working on my photography so I’m thrilled you like the photos. (It’s hard to make San Diego look bad.) Thanks for reading!
