For memorial day weekend Sam and I decided to take a trip to San Diego. We first stopped in Newport Beach for a whale watching cruise. It turned out to be an unusually cold and rainy (as in it’s not usually cold or rainy at all) day in Newport. After being out on the water for an hour the boat hadn’t managed to find anything. Then, as we headed back to port, the captain heard chatter on the coast guard radio about a pod of dolphins off the coast. In about twenty minutes we were in the thick of it, and we followed a massive pod south for about twenty minutes.
After that we ate at a nearby Thai restaurant (Mint Leaf) before heading down to Chula Vista. We checked into our hotel and spent the evening walking around Coronado Island.
