Shawn and I always attempt to take a trip over/around our anniversary. The past few years we’ve gone to Northern California and visited his youngest brother. We love Nor Cal and San Francisco, but we decided this year we needed to take a “just us” vacation. We decided on San Diego….I needed some ocean and beach.
As much as we had intended in the beginning to have a relaxing, just us time, we soon found our days filled with friends. And we wouldn’t have changed a moment.
We decided to head up to Riverside Sunday morning and visit some friends and their church. We had a wonderful time hanging all day with our friends and made new friends that literally had us laughing until we cried.
They’re currently meeting in the Life Arts Center in downtown Riverside. This September they’re moving locations to better serve their community.
Our hotel was on the border of Little Italy. We loved staying in that area and would do so again. The only time we drove anywhere to eat was Sunday on our way to Riverside and Monday evening when we met friends in Old Town. We walked a lot.
And my paparazzi picture.
Check in tomorrow for part two, including but not limited to ocean views.
