so i'm going to backtrack...to our honeymoon, well, minimoon more like it. we opted to stay local and save some money. we did just make the biggest expense we have ever made together, and we thought it was the right way to start our official life together.
so after the wedding, we headed down to Torrey Pines (famous for its golf courses; the U.S. Open was there last year) in La Jolla. we stayed at the Hilton Torrey Pines using our Hilton points! score! we ate at some highly recommended restaurants. hiked down to the beach through the Torrey Pines State Park. and just relaxed and enjoyed each other's company.
us at George's at the Cove; actually we were at the Bistro part of the restaurant, which sat on a cliff overlooking the ocean.
a short walk from our hotel was the Torrey Pines State Park.
dee climbing up the cliff...
just kidding...no cliff.
on our way to the bottom
self shot. skills! we're almost at the bottom.
made it! now we have to go back up...
us at Sushi Ota. we had our first "Omakase." we've tried other restaurants, ordering Omakase, and Sushi Ota has been, by far, superior! i don't remember what any of the dishes were called, but here's what they looked like:
that half-of-a-shrimp was still squirming and moving around while on my plate!!
after we finished this dish, the waitors asked how we wanted our shrimp head cooked. we asked for deep-fried (i wanted baked, but we heard deep-fried was the way to go).
thanks for continuing to read! also... TTO has started posting pictures of her amazing wedding!!! check it out!
