Sometimes, when Roan and I have no major travel plans for the weekend, we’d think of nearby places we could go to. Some days, hanging out at the mall seems plausible, but it also makes us vulnerable to unnecessary spending. Going on a food-trip, sometimes, just won’t cut it either. On the days we want to breathe some fresh air, we’d drive down Coronado Island to do just that.
One time, I told Roan this, “If there’s one place I’d love to go to for a quick weekend getaway, it’s going to be in Coronado Island!” That holds true to this day even if I’ve been there more than any of my in-laws have, combined. Los Angeles may be only two hours away from San Diego, but it may take longer to get there due to the typical bumper-to-bumper traffic in the area. Coronado Island, however, is literally just a stone’s throw away from San Diego. It is only half an hour away from where we live, and the weather remains to be the same compared to inland areas.
