San Diego Part 3: La Jolla Beach, USS Midway

On our third day Brandon and I got up and drove out to La Jolla Beach.
Our initial plan was to take surfing lessons, which we were super excited about; however the waves were not really surfing material that day.
Instead we ended up going on s sea kayaking tour through the sea caves.
We had a delicious brunch at the Crab Catcher.
We ordered two dishes and shared them both.
I had creme brulee french toast and Brandon had the poached eggs La Jolla with southern style lump crab cakes and remoulade sauce.
That was the best french toast I've ever had! It had caramelized granny smith apples, Tahitian vanilla bean sauce with cinnamon whipped cream and Vermont maple syrup. To die for! 
The view of the Pacific from our table.
The conditions of the Pacific at La Jolla.
The yellow building is the one we did our kayak tour from.
We used a disposable underwater camera on our kayaking trip because we got soaking wet.
I still haven't gotten them developed, but I'll update this post when I do.
You'll want to see the sea lions :)
After we got back from our sea kayaking trip we showered and got ready for a night on the USS Midway, which was an event sponsored by a drug rep company.
We ran into one of our friends from Gallup, NM that we met on our mission trips out there-such a small world!
We made a mistake by having dinner at Anthony's before going on the Midway.
We went because it was close by and on the water.
But the food was entirely too overpriced and the quality was poor.
The view was fabulous, so I guess that's what we were paying for. 
Me and Leslie on the Midway.
On top of the ship there was a dee-jay, lights, snacks, and fireworks on the water just for us-it was gorgeous!
What a great day!
My favorite part by far was getting to be out in the Pacific with the sea lions.

  1. I Love the Crab Catcher - Looks like you guys Sat at the Table we sat at for my 20th Birthday Dinner! :) I have never been there for breakfast but I can only imagine it's just as delicious. That is definitley my favorite place in La Jolla to eat at! :)

    As for Anthonys, I don't even know any Native San Diegans who like that place - Don't feel bad! haha
