So first things first, this is what we’re riding around in.

Not too shabby.

Yesterday, we decided to suffer for Roberts at Coronado, a little island near Point Loma.

It was a great decision.

Also a great decision: talking to the locals to find Miguel’s, a Mexican restaurant on the island.

Really, from the moment we walked in we knew we were in for something good. But when the tortilla chips came to the table hot and with a side of Miguel’s famous white sauce, we realized we were in for so much more goodness than we anticipated.

I veered from my standard beverage choice of water to try the mango mint iced tea…it was heavenly. SO amazing (on a side note: the mangoes here are amazing in and of themselves…I haven’t had mango this good since Thailand!)

And then it was time for the reason we were all gathered together in brotherly love at Miguel’s: dinner.

These fish tacos changed my life. In that I will never be able to eat a regular taco again without wishing it were it’s west coast cousin, fish taco.

After all of the goodness that the day had to offer it seemed perfect to end it with a sunset, so after our evening session at the conference I walked down to the coast to watch this:

It was indescribable. I’ve never seen a true sunset before, the kind where the sun literally dips and disappears before your eyes. An event like that is cause for celebration, which is why we decided to go on another field trip post sunset to…

PINKBERRY! We were a little pressed for time so documentation was hard to come by, but trust me when I tell you that it was a delightful experience. The frozen yogurt really is yogurt (that’s another thing I appreciate about California, everything is true to form – organic, pure, and wonderful), so it has the tartness of yogurt which was a pleasant surprise to a mouth that was expecting sugary ice cream. After much deliberation, I went with the original flavor with mangoes, kiwi, strawberries, and dark chocolate crisps. So good, I can’t even talk about it without wanting to jump in the car and go get another.

Tomorrow’s post will bring news of today’s adventures. One word to describe them all: Italian. Just wait and see.
