Once I leave SD I doubt I'm ever coming back. Need one last time with so many things.
The scallop sandwich at Point Loma Seafoods. I really hope it's still there. In all it's messy weird deliciousness. One last time I'd like to push my way to the front and order like a local. Sit on the pier, listen to the boats creak. Frickin scallop sandwich.
One last photo of the skyline from across the bay. It's a simple thing, but I love it. One last time, I just want to stand there, stare at the city's beauty, and hold it in my heart for the rest of my travels. I love San Diego.
I'll miss San Diego, but I'll miss the city more. I am a city boy. Sure Portland, but it's not as central as I need, and it will be hours away. So...... Do all the city stuff. Mercado, a street festival or two, Pride event, 4th fireworks.
Street tacos. Maybe more than anything else (other than people), San Diego tacos have helped define me as a person. They aren't nearly as good in other places I'ver tried. Fish tacos too. And my beloved Tacos Gobernador. And Mexican shrimp cocktail. And City Tacos. And El Comal. And Oscar's.
Nine Ten. I must eat there one last time.
Balboa Park. It won't be "one last time". It will be many. I'm going to miss it so much.
Mona Lisa Deli. One of the first things that made me fall in love with this place was getting a super-authentic Italian sub from Mona Lisa Deli, going to the coast, and just sitting there and enjoying all of it. So this is city life? I'm home.
La Jolla cove. I fell in love with the cove when I was still in Irvine and had to drive down. What a cool place. Need to spend some last quality time there.
Gaslamp Quarter. It's touristy, it's trashy, but I love what the city has managed to do. Several photos there I still need to take.
Beer and a burger. Great burgers as a thing started for me in San Diego. I may need several before I go. San Diego used to have the best craft beer scene in the world. But my locals closed, and then Stone Brewing sold out. Still.....
The desert. I'll be holding the dry arid desert close to my heart for the next phase in my life. No mold. No mud. No moss. No bugs. No cold. I need to go out there and hoover it in. I don't wear lockets, but I'd put the desert in one.<<<<< previous blog next blog >>>>>
