One of the things I'm really enjoying about this #dailygratitude thing is going back through old photos and reminiscing about all the trips and experiences I've had over the years.
I've mentioned before that I like playing tourist in my own city and this was absolutely that, kind of.
So before moving down here I had went on a Kayak Tour of the La Jolla coast/cave. Absolutely awesome experience, highly recommended it.
As we were kayaking along ahead of the group we saw this building right up on the water, honestly closer that you'd think any building should be. At first I thought it was a house of some eccentric millionaire, but that ended up being the house next door ;) (Dr. Seuss anyone?) Fortunately, we had a hilarious tour guide and while we were kayaking out to the caves he points out that it's actually a restaurant that has a super unique experience during super high tides called King Tides. He mentioned to check it out any chance you get because they're typically fully booked months out.
He had mentioned that the place frequently flooded and well, you can kind of see why.
Shortly after I moved down I look up the weather and realize that there was a King Tide coming up soon but in the morning. I immediately look up to see if that restaurant did breakfast (they did) and if they had any availability and to my luck, they had one table left.
High tide was said to be 10:49am, and I got a reservation for 10:30am. I was excited to check it out.
The food was honestly pretty mediocre but to me it was all about the experience. Unfortunately I wasn't on the side of the building that got the big splashes but I did have a seat up near the window and we did get a fair number of waves. It was an entertaining breakfast to say the least. I wouldn't say it was an amazing experience but certainly a fun one to check out if you get the opportunity. The kayak tour was definitely way more fun ;) So today's #dailygratitude is listening to absolute strangers and taking their recommendations to a unique experience and making the most of it.
