San Diego Trip, Sunday, Day 3

The Sheraton hotel is very nice. The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful. The only problem we had was that the entry/exit gates of the north parking lot (closest to our room) didn’t work all that well. On Sunday, we slept in, again. We checked-out around 9:30am or so and headed to Downtown for breakfast. We decided to try out this one place called Café 222 (pronounced two-twenty-two). After spending ½ an hour to find parking in Downtown, we finally ended up at the café. While we waited for a table, we checked out a nearby Farmers Market. Once we were seated at the restaurant, we enjoyed good and fast service with a great breakfast. I recommend this place. After breakfast, we walked down to the Downtown open air mall. We spent a little time there, then decided to head up to La Jolla (backup link). We didn’t have enough time to go snorkeling, nor did we have a hotel room to go back to for a shower afterwards, so we went there to scope out snorkeling locations for future reference. Once back in San Diego, we looked at some model homes for a new project. My g/f and I were both a bit surprised to find out that the builder was trying to sell million dollar homes. The floor layouts sucked, and the places just weren’t that big. How does anyone afford million dollar homes in San Diego? That kind of price is nuts for Silicon Valley (even though there are many million dollar homes here). Anyways, we ate a late lunch at In and Out. Then we returned the rental car and were off to the airport. Once back in San Jose, I got back to my place around 10pm and again fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. By the way, we got the car rental hella cheap on Orbitz.com. We got the flight and hotel room at a great price on Expedia.com. Travelocity, Expedia.com and Priceline.com all pretty much had the same offers listed. The only reason we chose Expedia is because I had an account with them.
