in Day in the Life, Taking Pictures

This evening, I actually *gasp* went out somewhere. Drove somewhere that was more than 5 minutes from my apartment and got dressed semi-nicely and everything. Who knew hell was going to freeze over today?

A good friend of mine took me out to dinner, and I chose a place in Del Mar called Poseidon. I’ve heard it mentioned a few times, and I’ve seen photos of what looked to be a pretty awesome patio right on the beach, so seemed worth checking out.

And oh, it was. Let me tell you, that patio was right on the beach. Here was our view:


The food wasn’t too shabby either. I didn’t get pictures of the hummus plate (yum) or our our cocktails, but the house salad was pretty good–no boring iceberg lettuce here:


The Ginger Pesto Day Boat Scallops were also amazing–the ginger cream sauce with pomegranate molasses was very unique and the scallops were perfectly cooked. Plus they were pretty…I mean, look at this guy:

Of course, that should have been enough, but I couldn’t leave well enough alone. First there was dessert and another cocktail. Then, after a walk on the beach, we moved locations to have another cocktail, and ended up sharing 2 more desserts.

And then I had to be rolled home.

Ah well, stuffed as I am, it was a great evening. Great company, great conversation, great food, beautiful views. Plus I got to see this, just to remind me how thankful I am to live here:

Wow those pictures are amazing and the food looks so good! I love hummus, num.

Gosh that view is amazing.

Yeah, can’t beat the view, that’s for sure!

I love eating on the patio at Poseidon. The beach is so beautiful and Del Mar has the most relaxing feel to it.
