I Spent Time in San Diego and Didn’t Take One Picture


So I go to San Diego for  BlogHer and you’d think that I’d at least take one photo of the area. Yes, I’m completely behind on my project 365 and I did, in fact, take my camera with me. But every time I walked out of the room the camera stayed behind. So you’re thinking I should have used my iPhone to take some pictures. You’re assuming I know how to use it for a decent photo. I have an iPhone3 but it lacks the panache of something fancier and my model does not have the kung fu grip. (I don’t know what an iPhone3 witha kung fu grip would be but it sounded good.)

For really nice pictures of San Diego, check out Short and Hat’s pictorial essay about the area. From the beaches to the night clubs to the beautiful and historic buildings there really is something for everyone.

You can pick your own Strawberries if you go in the late summer.


You can catch Shamu and his (or her?) friends at Sea World

You can drive over to the Hotel Del Coronado and visit an icon.

Or you can go to the beach.

San Diego really does have something for everyone. If you’re wondering where to take your next vacation and you want beaches, shopping, museums, great food, something for the kids, something for an adult-only trip or a multi-generational get together you’ll find it in San Diego. And now I want to go back. And sit at the beach.

If you want to go to San Diego, or anywhere in the US, Mexico or the Caribbean, try using Book It as your personal travel agency. A travel site run by real people, Book It offers competitive deals on Hotels, Car rentals and Air Travel.

So, when are you going to San Diego? Or shall I say, where to next?

Sara, I am first surprised you didn’t take any pictures. But it’s a relief to know it happens to all of us. I’m such a fail when it comes to documenting moments in life.

I took more pictures than I did at Blogher10, but not as many as I’d like.

For someone who took no pictures, you did a great job with these fill ins. Glad you enjoyed SanDiego.

We went to SD with my oldest when he was just 6 months old. What a wonderful city.

I am insanely excited to come to Social Soiree next year at BlogHer12 in NYC!!! I got my tickets this morning.
