Tori and I had a relaxing Valentine's weekend. Saturday morning, we went to Betty's Pie Whole Saloon for their delicious chicken pot pies as well as taking some desert pies home for later.
It was such a beautiful sunny day, we walked along the shore at high tide to Moonlight Beach and did some shopping in Downtown Encinitas. Before heading back we stopped at Solace and the Moonlight Lounge for drinks (Pim's Cup) and an appetizer (Cheddar and Chive Biscuits with Orange Honey Butter and Tomato Jam). Both were great! After watching a movie at home, we went down the road for dinner at Fish 101 for poke and shrimp tacos. There is always a long line outside when we drive past, but the wait is never bad.
Sunday, we went to the small park above Swami's Beach for AcroYoga. It was another day of heavy surf and the big lefts were continuously rolling around the point. Our friend, Federica, joined us and we helped her learn some of the basic positions. I have decided to start learning more arm-basing poses so Tori and I can still have fun while I am rehabbing my hip.
For our Valentine's Day dinner, Tori and I went to the Wild Note Cafe at the Belly Up. We loved the avocado-ranchero sauce that came with our Tequila Chicken Spring Rolls. I am also glad I ordered the Beef Albondigas, a Mexican meatball soup that was so hearty and flavorful. I will definitely order it next time. For our main courses, Tori ordered the Tandoori Chicken and I had the Filet Medallions. At the end, they gave us chocolate-covered strawberries as a special treat.
