San Diego: Day 3

{Check out this post, this one and this one for a recap of the first and second days of our girls' trip to San Diego!  And a huge thanks to my mom and sister for the pretty pictures in this post!}

Our third and final day in San Diego began with dessert for breakfast.  My sister found this little funky breakfast place that served the most delicious french toast and pancakes.  I ordered a pancake flight, which consisted of a plain cake, a peanut butter cup one and the special of the day, which included white chocolate chips and cream, topped with coconut.  Oh my goodness, it was heavenly.  My sister ordered the french toast special and we immediately went into sugar comas.  Totally worth it.

After awakening from our comas, we headed off to perhaps San Diego's most famous tourist spot - the San Diego Zoo!

We arrived at the zoo right when it opened and managed to see all of the big players in action.  It was an interesting experience having just interacted with animals so much at Nature by Nurture the day before.  A different experience, certainly, but still very fun in its own right.  We started off with a visit to the pandas...

...saw the elephants and explored the jungle...

...hung out with some polar bears (and had a height contest - I lost!)...

...chilled with some koalas...

...and hiked all over the zoo.  We were worn out by the time we were through but it was well worth it!  We did manage to see some otters, too, but it just wasn't quite the same as playing with them in a pool the day before ;)

Once we left the zoo, we had a few hours before we needed to head to the airport.  So we drove across the bridge over to Coronado Island.  We walked along the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view.

After a quick trip to Starbucks, it was time to head home.  The trip was such an incredible experience packed into just a few days.  I loved making these memories with my mom and sister, and look forward to more girls' trips in the future. <3
