Went to San Diego

So we were in San Diego for the airshow at Miramar... the weather was absolutely beautiful and it even rained a bit when we first got there! It was pretty great to be able to huddle under an umbrella in 65 degree weather with light cool rain coming down - since we get 1/2 an inch per YEAR in Yuma we appreciate rain when we can find it. The airshow was fun and Mike got a lot of video. Of course my favorite part was eating at new and interesting restaurants... Friday night we ate at Khyber Pass - its an Afghani restaurant and it was really good! Very similar to Indian and Persian food but with a few differences. We had the Aushak for appetizer and I had Chicken Daal for entree. Very tasty! I also tried Afghan Cherry Blossom tea, which was very sweet and spicy and refreshing. Then on Saturday we didn't get out for dinner until late so the Lebanese place we wanted to eat at was closed. We wound up going to Terra Restaurant in Hillcrest, and I had the incredibly delicious 'Duck Confit and Sliced Breast'... and we shared the coolest dessert ever - it was a chocolate pyramid with strawberry basil coulis, creme fraiche and raspberry chocolate pot de creme - I'm drooling just thinking about it! I love going to new restaurants and trying new things.. We really took it for granted when we lived in the big cities but now that we are in Yuma and our options are limited, we really try to branch out when we leave town. And without cable I can't get my fancy food fix from Food Network anymore! Let's see, what else.... oh yeah we took some back roads to get home, and we stopped in this tiny little town at this cool abandoned building to take some artsy pictures. I posted them on my pics page if you're interested - now I need to finish my math homework!
