San Diego Visit

View of San Diego downtown 


My wife Irene wanted to visit San Diego for the longest time. On August 9, we finally decided to take 3 days off and drove for a long way for a visit. In between of gas stops, restroom break, and lots of traffic in L.A., we drove over 10 hours. Arrived at Omni Hotel and checked in around 6:30pm. 

We both were so hungry, and Irene was craving for Japanese sushi. She also a super fan of Yelp, with the search. We found a 4+ stars Japanese cuisine, Taka Sushi. I had to say, it's been a while since the last trip from Japan that I had such a good Japanese tasting. I would recommend this place, and you won't regret this. I promise. Trust me, I don't get pay for saying this. :-)

After dinner, we decided to drive around the city and check out the view from Centennial Park. On the way to the park, we drove by homeless issues, with many unsheltered people living on the streets. We both were a little worry when we came to this part of the world, but shortly. We crossed San Diego-Coronado bridge. With the help of GPS, we got to 1101 1st St, Coronado, easily. The image above was the first class view of downtown San Diego from the park. 

By 10:30pm, Irene was really tired, so we went back to the hotel. Luckily, this time we didn't have to pass the homeless part of the town. 

After shower, I immediately went to out to the patio. The view was beautiful, with Hilton Bayfront, convention center, trolleys, and the bridges with all those streets lights sparkling like stars. I love this view even better than the view from Contennial Park, I honestly do. Thanks to Irene for chosen this hotel, very pricey, but well worth it. This was our first time visited San Diego, and it will not be the last.
