We had a wonderful time on our San Diego vacation. Needless to say I had to take it very easy and paid heavily when I didn't, but there was still plenty of time for fun, sightseeing and lots of good food.

The best part was that our hotel was this little gem about 40 feet from Pacific Beach, so when I needed to rest or take a nap, Cliff could hop down to the water and swim or hang out and people watch. We even had an ocean view from the kitchen in our king suite. It was perfect, and they gave us the most amazing deal on our room. I highly, highly recommend the Pacific Shores Inn. The rooms are nicely updated, the staff is friendly and everything was clean a a whistle.

We spent a wonderful day at Sea World, part of a very rough day for me at the San Diego Zoo (it's not a good fit for people with disabilities because of the hilly terrain) and visited Coronado, La Jolla and Torrey Pines State Park. So many beautiful places within one area!

While we were there we ate at Phil's BBQ, La Perla Cocina Mexicana, the Broken Yolk, Lucha Libre Taco Shop and the Brockton Villa. I recommend them all, but some more enthusiastically than others.

It kills me to say it since I'm from the Kansas City area, but Phil's BBQ is by far the best we've ever had in our lives. The smoke on their meat is outstanding. Neither of us cared much for the side dishes, though. It's all about the meat there.

Brockton Villa makes the most amazing souffle-like french toast. You've absolutely got to taste it to believe it. Seated outdoors overlooking the ocean and eating that decadent meal will make you think you've died and gone to heaven.

As you can tell we had a marvelous time. Our only real complaint was that the week went way too fast!
