Back to reality

Hope everyone had a great labor day weekend. Its hard to believe its the last official weekend of the summer, but I have a feeling things will feel a little different this year. Anyways we have had a fun filled weekend. We had dinner at a great place that is right on the water called C level, and besides the $30 glass of scotch that Bri ordered it was reasonably priced with great food, and a spectacular view.

There was no beach volleyball this weekend so we just leisurely went to the beach. We boogie boarded for the first time at pacific beach, and the waves there were intense. I pretty much catapaulted and was tossed into a full out sommersalt so I called it quits after that, but it was fun. We met up with one of my friends Erin and her husband Tao. We worked together at my first school out of grad school and it was super fun to hang out with some familiar faces and have some laughs. I was relieved that people were around to enjoy a bbq at our house because that is typically how we rolled back in Boston.

Other than that we are just dandy. We went for a hike today up Mt. Cowles (pronounced coals) and unlike NH trails, you are totally exposed to the sun the entire time. Poor Belle was panting the whole time and kept trying to find refuge in the small amount of shade under some random shrubs and rocks. Needless to say we didn't make it all the way up with her, but I think once the weather cools off she'll love it. It had the most spectacular view of San Diego. Unfortch my camera pooped out up there so no pics of the view but i'm sure we'll do the hike this fall.

I am tirelessly trying to find the best deals on good tickets to the Pats vs Chargers game, so wish us luck on that.

On another side note, I will do my best to getting some footage of Wednesday nights inner tube water polo game. We are playing the champions from last year so it should be good.

Back to school tomorrow!
