It’s been a busy weekend at The Aerie. With some trepidation, we went Saturday to provision ourselves for Thanksgiving and to our great surprise the stores we hit (Costco, Vons, and our local Asian market) weren’t terribly crazy. That meant that we were able to get more done than we thought we would, which subsequently gave us a little bit of a breather today. So, we decided to take an excursion with Penny and Buzz.
First stop: Coronado Dog Beach. We live the mantra that “a tired dog is a good dog” and there’s not many better places to go get your dog good and tired than dog beach. Penny likes to run and retrieve the bumper, and we’re okay with the view. Penny also made a new friend, Penelope the Rottweiler. They ran and played together and Penny made sure Penelope knew how fierce she was.
On our way out, we cruised past the historic Hotel Del Coronado and enjoyed the views of America’s Finest City from the Coronado Bay Bridge.
Our next stop was the San Diego Public Market, which is a new enterprise that has the goal of establishing a permanent fresh food market (think Seattle’s) in a low-income area of downtown that hasn’t seen much development in recent years. It was initially funded through Kickstarter. Everyone we met there was very excited about being off the ground and there was some great produce and food available.
On our way home we also drove through town to see how construction was going on San Diego’s new Public Library. Looking good!
All in all, it was a great start to our day and made the rest of our chores for Sunday not seem like quite such a bother.
Certainly, not to a tired dog.
