Winding alleyways lined with succulents 🐢 The desert tortoises live about 50 to 80 years;[5] they grow slowly and generally have low reproductive rates. They spend most of their time in burrows, rock shelters, and pallets to regulate body temperature and reduce water loss. They are most active after seasonal rains and are inactive during most of the year. This inactivity helps reduce water loss during hot periods, whereas winter hibernation facilitates survival during freezing temperatures and low food availability. Desert tortoises can tolerate water, salt, and energy imbalances on a daily basis, which increases their lifespans.[6] Sleeping seals and sea lions A playful sea lion poses for the camera. #waterlust The grizzly bear at the San Diego Zoo.

I highly recommend this place for not only great food but the amazing views! This Harbor is full of amazing sights, delicious eats and cute little shops, not to mention it is walking distance to the Gas Lamp District! A Southern California must!

We have the same sculpture in my home town of Sarasota, Florida so I was surprised to see it on my morning walk while visiting San Diego. The oldest active sailing ship docked at the San Diego harbor. This statue in San Diego is based on an iconic photo of a sailor kissing a girl at Times Square, New York and later published in Life magazine The image commemorates V-J Day on August 14, 1945. We heard the cinnamon rolls here were good, so we grabbed some for breakfast to go. Although it was great, being one of the most expensive rolls on our list ($8) did not bring it to the top. The dough was decent and the crunchy cinnamon sugar was awesome, but the frosting on top was a bit too cream-cheesy for me personally.

Next time you're in San Diego, don't forget to stop by and chow at Phil's. Petco Park is a baseball park located in the downtown area of San Diego, California, United States, that is home to the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball It's really hard to beat a waterfront sunset. This was an especially nice break from the snow I left at home. Heading to San Diego? Head to balboa park. Not only do they have a super cool cactus garden, but the zorro garden has these amazing trees with long roots.

I was so glad to have my polarizing lens on my camera as this allowed me to easily see the whales 🐳 swimming underneath the water. This was a bucket list excursion for me, it was worth every penny of the $41 ticket.
