Anniversary Stay-cation

Shane surprised me with a weekend stay-cation for our 7 year anniversary.  Paradise Point is a resort on Mission Bay and somewhere I have been wanting to go for about 7 years now. Apparently all the cool people of San Diego have frequented their Barefoot Bar on Sundays, for drinks and live music. I was not one of the cool people, Shane was.

When we went to check in we were told it would be longer than they hoped for us to get into our room. Apparently the guests that checked out had “lived it up” the night before and well, you get the picture.  So we had to sit at the bar and stare at this awful view while we waited. Luckily we ended up getting another room other than the one where the rockstars stayed.


The entire resort is gorgeous, you tend to forget where you are.

And the view from our room was perfect.


Shane got us a bay view suite that suited us just fine.

Once we settle in we decided on a swim maybe accompanied by drinks and dinner. But the main pool was full of kids and the pool  bar and grill closed at 5….on a Friday. That wouldn’t have been a huge deal but it was a big wedding weekend there and their other bayside lounge was closed for a private event. That forced us back the Barefoot bar we were at earlier in the day for dinner, no biggy but either was their food.

Saturday was the perfect day. We casually got up and sat out to enjoy the view and the weather, absolutely perfect weather.

POOL and SUN was all we had planned for the day. We sat there all afternoon, perfect day, perfect day.

Not a bad way to celebrate our 7th year of marriage.
