The next day on Sunday we slept in and then got on our swimming suits and headed to LaJolla for a day of kayaking on the ocean. The did the LaJolla 7 caves tour and had an amazing time. The weather couldn't have been better. We both got a workout kayaking in single kayaks against the current towards the caves. Every so often the group guide would stop to let everyone gather as he told us cool historical insights into the surrounding area. When we finally got to the caves we kayaked along the outer sections of the cave and then Myisha and I headed back with another guide since all the rocking on the water was starting to make me a little motion sick. As we made our way toward the shore we had one last tricky section to get back to land. I made it ok but Myisha's kayak tipped over. She was ok, but a little more wet than I ended up being. We headed to the car and changed our clothes and then drove to eat dinner at Catania. We had the best view overlooking the ocean and the food was amazing. We ended the night with another PJ session and talked until we couldn't keep our eyes open anymore.
We spent Monday and Tuesday sleeping in and then headed to the beach at Corona Del Mar. The weather was perfect--not too hot or too cold. We brought lots of fun snacks and stayed a couple of hours each time and just had so much fun talking the entire time. On the way home on our second beach day, we stopped at the taco truck and got street fish tacos which were amazing. We also got authentic Coca-Cola from Mexico which apparently tastes way better. I'm not a huge Coke fan so I tried a little bit and gave the rest to Myisha.
On Wednesday we woke up super early for Myisha's surgery at the military hospital. While she was in surgery I walked outside of the base and found an electric scooter and rode down the street to Balboa Park. I enjoyed walking around looking at the gardens and all the pretty flowers. Then I headed back to the hospital and picked up Myisha and took her home. I was so glad that everything went well with her surgery. I stayed one more night and then left the next day for Colorado. It was such a sad goodbye. I didn't want to go but needed to get back to be with the kids. I can't wait for our next girls' trip together!
