SD for a Day

Last Christmas, I bought everyone in my closest family (mom, dad, two younger brothers, aunt + uncle, Chris) tickets to see Les Miserablés. I found out that they were touring again and California was one of their destinations – I immediately scooped up some tickets. The day finally came when we went to San Diego during the first weekend of June.

*insert tears of happiness* The musical was so beautiful, amazing, incredible, and whatever other positive adjective is out there. I’ve been a fan of Les Mis since I read the book and I waited for nearly a decade for them to tour again. They were previously a regular on Broadway but stopped their shows around 2016 and that really broke my heart. I remember the day in December – I was browsing through theatre websites for Hamilton tickets and I saw that Les Mis was coming to San Diego! I broke down in tears and called Chris, hyperventilating. A minute later, I dropped nearly $600 on tickets. Whoops, impulsive.

After the show, we grabbed dinner by the marina at Mitch’s Seafood. Did somebody say fresh seafood from the waters off San Diego and Northern Baja California?! Count. Me. In. I got the mixed seafood platter which had fish, shrimp, calamari and crab cake. Their crab cake was amazing (Chris ordered the crab cake sandwich and said it was one of the most amazing sandwiches he’s ever tasted!). The restaurant was a little pricey but when does seafood come cheap?

Afterwards, we explored the marina and checked out the yachts and boats docked nearby. It was a really fun day! On our way home, Chris and I stopped by CVS Pharmacy to buy some San Diego and we totally hit the jackpot so that was basically the cherry on top.
