Marc's "pretty in pink" team was everything you could want in a team. They were competitive, full of energy and just a blast to hang out with. My team was just as fun. The team was made up of 3 couples and although they didn't know each other at first, they all hit it off and became fast friends. That's probably one of the greatest things about our job. We get to see friendships form right in front of us. It's very cool.
After the hunt wrapped, we had the rest of the night to ourselves so we decided to head to South Park's Walkabout. Since the night was warm, it was the perfect activity. If you've never been to this event, check it out. It's worth it! South Park is an eclectic neighborhood, filled with funky coffeehouses, unique shops and restaurants. All the businesses stay open for this event and many offer free desserts, appetizers and wine. It's a wonderful way to check out the neighborhood! I even ran into a former Channel 8 friend I hadn't seen in years. Talk about a small world.
Sunday was just as fun. After we finished our work day, there was still plenty of time to enjoy the day so we drove over to Point Loma's Rock Church. We've been going to the Rock for over three years and it always amazes us. From the awesome Christian Rock Choir to its countless volunteers and "Do Something" campaign, it's truly inspiring. Following Church, we grabbed lunch at Panera Bread (love their Fuji Apple Chicken Salad) and then headed to Seaport Village for the "Busker Festival."
If you're like us and appreciate the art of street performing, you'll enjoy this event. Every year, Seaport Village features a handful of street performers and over the course of 2 days, they perform and the public gets to vote on who they feel is the "best of the best." It's always a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors and be entertained, all for free! Afterwards, we ended the day at El Indio (a very POPULAR Mexican restaurant) and chowed down on a tasty Fish Burrito. As we talked about the great weekend we had, we were sad to see it end but then we looked up and caught a glimpse of the weather forecast for the week ahead - nice, dry and in the 60's all week. Considering that some parts of the country are still experiencing winter snow storms, we'll take the 60 degree weather.
Make it a great week - wherever you are!
Happy Travels everyone,
