The boy and I randomly pulled over to stretch out our legs and get some air on our way to Coronado Island - only in California can you make a random unplanned pit stop and encounter a view like this all for yourself. I kind of wanted to stick a flag on top of that little mound of a hill and claim it as my very own.

Of course the first thing we do once we actually get to Coronado is eat - nothing quite like a cold cerveza on a breezy summer day and a pile of freshly made tortilla chips and refreshingly spicy salsa.

Lobster burrito - slippertail lobster filled with peppers, onions, pinto beans and topped with salsa verde, red chile and jalapeno cheese sauce.

Grilled swordfish tacos on flour tortillas with cabbage, and salsa fresca.
