Our house hunting continues and we've broadened our search to Escondido in North County. Though it's been work to familiarize ourselves with the neighborhoods, it's been a good way to find hidden gems. (We found out that escondido means "hidden" in Spanish.)
While viewing a few houses last week during a lunch break, hunger pains hit me while we drove past Nayeli's Taco Shop. It was a hole in the wall and the carne asada was fantastic. B found out about Peterson's Donut Corner nearby which will come in handy since I've acquired a fondness for donuts these past three weeks. The reviews we've read sound promising. Too bad I haven't been in the mood for a donut whenever we've been in the neighborhood.
This morning, we decided to check out Queen Califia's Magical Circle in Kit Carson Park, another B find. There's a mosaic sculpture in Balboa Park which we think is by the same artist. These sculptures are in the back corner of the park down a dirt path. Once you see the circle of trees, you do enter a magical, whimsical place. There was so much to look at! Definitely worth another visit.
