I am loving San Diego so far and never, ever want to leave.

Morning runs with Mako, rolling around in bed,  and great company with great food — what’s not to love?

Breakfast:

Baby carrots w/pb

Apparently Mako and I enjoy the same snacks. Dog at heart.

Thanks for the food and drinks Lyle!

Brown Shugga beer

Deceptively strong (I think this was 9%) — this tasted like a 4% at maximum. Sweet and smooth. 

Dinner at Sushi Ota, San Diego, CA:

Complimentary edamame — complimentary calamari (shared w/Karen & John)

Had a long wait so they brought over complimentary appetisers almost immediately. 🙂

Miso soup

Mackerel (ate half of one, gave the rest to Karen and John) — octopus — salmon

Tried the mackerel at John’s suggestion, but wasn’t a fan. I still love my octopus and salmon.

Chef’s choice: various tunas, octopus, eel, shrimp (gave to Karen), salmon, octopus & California roll

This platter would have been more than enough; I was a bit ambitious in ordering the extra rolls. Favourites: eel, salmon and octopus. The tuna was good, but I’m just not a fan.  Thanks for dinner, Karen! 🙂
