The Cabrillo National Monument at the point of Point Loma in San Diego is a fantastic place to visit for some great history, unbeatable views and easy hiking. In addition to the museum and lighthouse, the area also has one of the best-protected and accessible rocky “intertidal” tidepool areas (which means,Β the unique ecosystem that lies between the high and low tides) in southern California.

New Years Resolutions and Healthy Changes

  • January 3, 2018

Happy New Year everyone — wow its 2018! I absolutely loved 2017, maybe a little too much. At the end of the year I noticed my weight crept up outside the range of my comfort. I also realized that my nightly wine habit that originally was fun, didn’t feel fun anymore. It felt like well, more of a habit than a special treat. The New Year is a great time…

Five Days in London

  • October 4, 2017

The last time I was in London I was 22. Right after graduation from college some friends and I loaded up backpacks, bought a Eurorail pass and flew to London as the first stop of our journey. At the time the Pound worth was about $1.80 so everything was ridiculously expensive. On a tight budget, we barely had enough to pay for the expensive taxis let alone have a good…

My husband flew to London to spend some time…
