Come January, I have gotten into the habit of taking off for a week or more with my daughter Jessica and her boys, Avery and Darien. We look for sun, warmth, and salt water - anything to escape Montana's cold and gloom. This year (2018), we went to San Diego, and did we ever enjoy it!
Granted, the food was not as good as in Los Angeles. The accommodations were more "rustic." The street people were more street. But the ocean was wonderful, and we sucked it up big time.
