Can this place get anymore beautiful? I think not. Everywhere we look, turn, and go is absolutely gorgeous! I’m trying to recruit the rest of my family to move out here, but apparently relocating is not on anyone’s top agenda. I guess we’ll have to save this gem for vacationing and visiting the little brother!
Saturday morning, we headed to the gym with Justin and his girlfriend, Dana. Jonny hit the ‘mill while us three attended a spin class. The class was long and hard and just what I needed for a cardio-only day!

Saying I don’t like golf would be an understatement. I think it is boring, tedius, and no fun at all. Watching golf? Even worse. Well, actually I have never watched golf before, but Justin got us tickets to the PGA’s Farmers Insurance Open, so we went. And then my thoughts were confirmed. We accepted the tickets and the offer because I knew the sites would be [as always] gorgeous, Justin loves golf, and it was a beautiful day out.
Torrey Pines, where the Open was held, was pristine! Not a blade out of place! (I guess?) However, the personnel working left little to be desired. Dana and I were snapping pictures, this way and that, of the course, golfers, and each other. One time, someone told us to put our cameras away, but I thought that was just because a golfer was teeing off.
Nope. Later we found out that photography of any sort, as well as using a cellular device, was strictly prohibited. Now, when I say strictly prohibited, I mean it. There were no signs (that we saw), but a worker man came up to us after Dana and I had our cameras and phone high up in the air trying to catch a glimpse over the crowd and he informed us of this rule. He also told us that we had two options: 1) We could give him our devices and get them back on our way out. (Um no.) Or 2) We could delete the photos. We opted for option two, faked deleted a couple, and hoped he wouldn’t check. He didn’t and so we kept the few pictures we had gotten and didn’t pull them out again. So sneaky.
Whenever there was a really good golfer up, the crowds were massive. There were so many people crowded around that unless you were in the front you couldn’t see any action! And what fun is “action” when a guy swings and half a second later you don’t know where the ball went? Plus, you can’t take pictures. You can’t talk. You can’t even play on your phone. And you had to have your ticket displayed at all times (like attached to you). Or you got yelled at. Again. This really made no sense to me because you had to show your ticket or you couldn’t get in to the event! Ah the insanity! Wherever we had room, I parked my tush on the grass and basked in the sun. I’m not a fan of golf. I am a fan of San Diego.
Are you a golf fan? Do you play or watch? Or both? Or neither? You know which one I am! (Justin, we wouldn’t have changed anything at all about today! Well, except the people who kept yelling at us about taking pictures. We love spending time with you guys no matter what it is… especially in this weather!!!)
