Pacific Terrace Hotel is a Hidden Gem on Pacific Beach in San Diego! I absolutely loved this hidden gem on Pacific Beach when I visited San Diego in December.
San Diego is a dream destination as there are few cities that can compare in sheer beauty and accessibility to the ocean. The dream city is on the far southern end of California, nestled between the ocean and mountains. The weather is almost always perfect. I actually did see, for the first time, a couple of days of rain in San Diego in December. It only added atmosphere to the locations I wanted to visit. Of course, the first consideration on any trip is where to stay. I wanted to do something a little different, so I searched for smaller, boutique hotels on the water, and I found a true hidden gem on Pacific Beach, the Pacific Terrace Hotel!

3 Ways to Plan on Having a Happy New Year in 2022!
Yes, we are still in the Covid pandemic. I could choose to be glum and frustrated, and so could everyone else. I’d been planning my first citizen-science dive trip since Covid began, a fabulous multi-day trip to the Maldives! When it was over, I decided to spend a few days in Singapore. The trip was canceled. Yes, I am very disappointed. The new variant has spread like wildfire, and I understand that the trip was canceled for good reason. I am one of many who have lost loved ones to COVID, so I do understand the cancellation. For those of us who love to travel, the pandemic has greatly affected our lives. So, what to do what about it?
Yes, I LOVED Diving with Tiger Sharks at Tiger Beach! It was a trip I’d always wanted to take, and I finally just did it!
Have you ever heard of Tiger Beach in the Bahamas? It is the best Tiger Shark diving around. I went with Jim Abernathy, a shark conservationist who runs liveaboard boat trips out of Palm Beach. He does shark diving all over the world with just about every species of shark. I decided I had to do it. You can check out Jim on Instagram at @jim_abernathy for some pretty amazing photos!
Photo Friday Brings Beautiful Florida Beaches to you!
My trips to Florida the past month haven’t all been happy ones, but no matter, just a walk down the beach soothes my soul. We all have sorrow in our lives, and last month I spent a lot of time in Florida partially because my aunt died unexpectedly of Covid lung complications. At 85, Covid is no joke, but we thought she had gotten through it. Sadly, she had Covid Pneumonia where her lungs scarred and hardened. When it comes to Covid, there are no politics, only science. She lived in Florida, and I wonder if there had been a mask mandate would she still be with us? I don’t know, but I’ll always wonder. I had a couple of days in the last month when I could get to the beach. The ocean calms me, maybe it has that effect on you?
