We are officially in our final week in Maine as well as on the east coast. This time next week, we’ll be in the car, heading towards our new life in beautiful San Diego. It’s surreal. I’ve never left the east coast before so the trip alone will be an adventure. There will be so many new places to see and things to do. New restaurants to eat at, beaches to visit, towns and cities to explore. It makes me excited just thinking about it! Over the last couple months, I’ve been gathering ideas for what we should do while we’re stationed in California. I’m sure I’ll be adding to this list as we go, but I think this is a good starting point for now.
