About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

Snow Patrol, O.A.R., Mike Moran, Eric Hutchinson

  1. The concerts in La Jolla are very cool and we recently went to the Safari Park for my birthday and it was a blast. The Flightline is incredible!

    A longtime local from La Jolla guest blogged an article on the La Jolla Blue Book visitor guide blog titled “18 can’t miss San Diego Attractions.” Thought you all may be interested what he came up with…

  2. Come by and see us at OH MY DOG! Photography during Ray at Night. We just bought a cool remote trigger for our camera’s shutter and we’ll have a self triggered photo booth in our studio that night. 3824 Ray St.

  3. I might have to check out the La Jolla concerts by the sea. The picture you listed looks like a good time and you can’t beat free.

    Thanks for the tips Suzzanne!
