Dinner with friends and cartoonists in San Diego.
On my drive home from San Diego, I couldn’t help noticing the famous California “Superbloom” of wild poppies that have sprung up all over our hills and mountains due to the abundant rain that has fallen over the past few months.
I even got out of my car to see our beautiful California poppies up close.

The Melt Bar & Gril
After the show, I stopped by the “Melt” bar and grill for one of their famous grilled cheese sandwiches, I had the Macaroni & Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich…Can you say AWESOME!
Jeni's Ice Cream Parlor.
Before leaving, I absolutely had to stop by Jeni’s Ice Cream for a scoop of goat cheese & cherry ice cream on their home-made waffle cones with a hint of sea salt. I love Ohio. I can hardly wait to return.
