A State Of Mind

I’ve been on a very hectic schedule for months now. Driving my daughter, Shantel, to school everyday which is a 42 mile round trip adventure, taking her to all her weekly appointments, checking in on my mother and taking care of all her needs as well as trying to keep up with the daily routine of taking care of my home and family..

So today, I decided after I got Shantel to school to take her biology practical lab test, I was going to take myself on a little mini vacation custom-made just for me… Just look at this beautiful little beach front vacation spot I took myself to today..


Who wouldn’t be able to relax here?

They have adorable little table huts where people talk nice to you and bring you food and cold drinks


They even know your name. Look, they said I’m Virginia and I’m a 10…


I said “yes, I am.., thank  you for noticing… 🙂

This place is spotless, and full of cheerfulness with all the bright colors I love.


They are known for fresh fish and even have them hanging on the walls to show you how good they are at catching them.. Wow, I probably have to book a deep-sea fishing boat tour to catch one like this.. Too bad I didn’t have time for that today…


Since it is Friday in Lent, I ordered a fresh fish taco… YUMMERS!!!


That fish was soooo good. Crispy on the outside but soft and flaky on the inside. Served with cabbage and a white sauce to die for… They also have a self-serve salsa bar so you can add more deliciousness if you want… .

They offer outdoor seating if you like. Lots of pretty flowers there. Probably due to the nice ocean breeze and humidity.. don’t you think?


Where, you might ask, was this mini vacation escape I found…?


I’d like to say it is in one of my all time favorite vacation spots, San Diego, but the truth is it’s just around the corner from Shantel’s school… Didn’t matter to me because today I pretended I was in San Diego and it worked… you see, sometimes, it really is all just “a state of mind” Ha!!! 🙂

What’s ya think?

Stay Tuned!
