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. Just a heads up.. you have Canadian “snowbirds” jet demonstration team pictured for the air show (not scheduled this year), as well as mentioning that the Air Force “Thunderbirds” will be there, but won’t be there this year (you’re probably thinking of the Navy “Blue Angels”). Also there are no stealth fighters since the “Nighthawk” has been retired from service and the F-22 Raptor (our nations only stealth fighter) will not be there this year either. Feel free to send me any questions relating to US military aircraft 🙂
