Solana Beach

I met up with Chelsea at The Beach Grass Cafe which her husband suggested. Thanks Eric for the suggestion! I was excited to check it out as I read good reviews about it on Yelp. Yelp showed 4 out of 5 stars with a little more than 300+ reviews.

I was in the mood for some kind of scramble so I ordered No.5 under the scrambles section. This had turkey chorizo, avocado, tomato, spinach, and cheddar cheese with a side of fruit. Oh man, I was stuffed from my chorizo scramble! Every bite of it was so good and it did not disappoint me at any point. All of this beauty was worth the one hour drive to Solana Beach from Orange County. Of course, catching up with Chelsea made the drive even better!

Because we ate so much, we had to walk it off. So we walked over to the Design District which had a bunch of boutiques with numerous handmade artwork.

For example, this one store had strings of butterflies hanging. It was almost beautiful yet a little scary because the butterflies would move fly around a little.

The butterflies definitely caught my eyes because of the bright colors and intricate touch involved.

Another store just had random things like these sunglasses we tried on.

One of the more hip stores we checked out was called Solo. It was like an Anthropologie/Hallmark/TJ Max Home Goods kind of a store. So this store had this stuffed animal where you hang it on a wall. This one animal in particular reminded me of The Fox by Ylvis that’s been going viral.

The stuffed animal is kind of cute. Kind of, right? If you don’t know the song, The Fox, then come check it out on Youtube below:

The Design District reminded me of a more calm version of Newport Beach or Corona Del Mar. It was nice to walk around and see all the random artwork there. After walking around the Design District, we decided to head back back home. Hopefully next time we go to Solana Beach, we can go during the summer when it’s not so cold!

Thanks Chelsea for meeting up in Solana Beach! Tell your hubby I said thanks again for suggesting The Beach Grass Cafe!
