Pacific Beach - San Diego

Day 19

Sunset on the PacificThis the kinda place that can reel you in for good. It's a place that makes you forget about all the wars and hurricanes ripping the world apart. Somewhere to lose yourself for months, or years, if you let it.

Pacific Beach, San Diego.

Before the Greyhound unceremoniously dumped us downtown, I admittedly had no real knowledge of what San Diego was all about other than that it bordered Mexico and looks sunny and warm on the map.

Due to the ordeal/adventure of crossing the country via Greyhound we didn't have a chance read anything about this place and were forced to task Brian's mother with booking us accommodation 'somewhere fun and near the beach'. The Banana Bungalow turned out to be the perfect spot for us to base ourselves. In the four days that we've been here, we've managed to fully immerse ourselves in the sleep-all-day, party-all-night beach culture that this place oozes. As far as hostels go, I'd rate the fun factor off the scale. It's not a place for light sleepers or anybody looking for a quiet time. These people never stop.

But alas, we have a long way to go and the urge to move is creeping up on us. The luggage arrived today (only 4 days late) and it's clear to us that our migration to a warmer climate is only partially complete. It's remained overcast and a little too cool for our tastes since we arrived. There's a good possibility that we'll make a run for the border tomorrow sometime. Of course our plans, as always are subject to change at a moments notice.

I know there's been talk of a forum. The old host for this site had free software that I was playing around with and I'm not opposed to getting something similar up on this site, however I'm short on expertise and online time. If there's anybody out there that can do it for us... I'd be open to it....
