I am no birthday party person and so normally I would not talk about my own birthday. But this one was so super special that I have to write about it. It was my best ever birthday, something so unexpected and so surprising. Not only for the happening but that someone would do something so wonderful to me.
I already said before that I don’t want anything happen at that particular day. But the previous day my sweetie asked me if HE can celebrate my birthday and if I trust him. Of course I trust him and yes he can. I confess I was a little nervous about that. But there was of course no reason for!
The next morning was a beautiful sunny morning, warm like it is in Southern California even in January. We were sitting outside in the front yard having breakfast and he asked me to pack something for an evening and a night out. Oh. My. Gosh. I really didn’t know or imagined anything.
A little later we were on the road to downtown San Diego (where he/we live). Parking and a short walk to the boat to go to Coronado Island. That’s where the beautiful skyline photos were shot.
We decided to walk into the center of Coronado Island where we would have lunch at Burger Lounge.
In September we have been here already once to Burger Lounge and I loved the paleo burger. I asked this time for a bison paleo burger. It is the best ever burger I had! Please ask for it if you happen in any Burger Lounge!
We had a wonderful walk back to the boat and then back to Downtown San Diego.
From there it was just a short drive to a beautiful little Victorian style b&b, the Britt Scripps Inn. Another surprise!
It was originally built in 1887 and is an award winning boutique hotel in Downtown SD. The little jewel is situated on Bankers Hill, just a few walking minutes from Balboa Park.
Inside it’s all old style, furbished with taste and has a lot of atmosphere, right how I love it. The room was beautiful and a real special place for two.
High speed wireless Internet, free parking (parking house opposite of the b&b), a nice garden, outside sitting in the patio, LCD TV, AC, hairdryer and many other amenities for the room. Breakfast with a good choice for sweet and salt lovers is included.
Later after dressing for the evening he brought me nearby at Mister A’s Roof Lounge for the sunset. As the airport is nearby we could observe the big planes landing in San Diego with the most beautiful background while sipping a drink.
After sunset we had a wonderful walk to Balboa Park, just minutes from there. In the evening time everything is illuminated, from architecture to palm trees, spectacular!
We had dinner at the Prado restaurant.
And guess what? We had a great waiter who advised me for my paleo eating as he is paleo as well. I found out a lot of people are eating like me and it’s only important to ask. Oftentimes I found out the people know exactly what I am talking about and know what to serve.
We stayed for a long time enjoying our dinner and the special atmosphere. In summer I want to come back and sit outside in the patio or garden. It’s so beautiful!
We walked back to our b&b and had a wonderful (and romantic) stay there.
The morning after before checking out we had a small breakfast. My sweetie tried a little bit of everything, I was more careful and had just fresh fruit and prosciutto with my coffee.
I had my best ever birthday and that’s because I have the most precious sweetheart. Thank you for your love! (anything else stays private!)
