After we had spent a few days in the centre of San Diego, we moved over up the coast just a little ways to Mission Beach - which was where the kids - my sister and her aged friends had decided was a good place to spend a few weeks. It was a bit of a party place origionally - lots of skateboarders and people on holiday -
but it did turn out to be a really fun place, and the beautiful beach was lovely to spend all day sitting in the sun. Rachel lives a bit north of where we were. Santa Monica I think, and she had a few days off work and such, so she drove all the way down to see us, in order to save me having to go all the way up there.
We had such a wonderful time with her - hanging out on the beach, doing henna tatoos and just catching up as it had been so long since I had seen her! We spent a lot of time taking photos in the beautiful sunsets - by the time we were ready to leave, it was like I had 4 sisters - and it was such a wonderful holiday!
