Taking San Diego to the MAX

Does sunshine inspire more creativity? I wasn't convinced, but after visiting San Diego for Adobe MAX, I think I might believe it!

I didn't even know how pumped I was supposed to be for Adobe MAX. I knew it would be a great experience, but as a first-time attendee, the conference far exceeded my expectations. I learned a ton about so many different creative fields.
Afterward, my team and I hung around San Diego for an extra day to enjoy "America's Finest City." It was definitely one the highlights of my year!
After filling our brains, we were ready to unwind!

We stopped to check out Marina Embarcadero Park before taking a Seal Boat tour. I was struck by the wistful look of the young woman in the foreground as she watched a couple stroll by.
I feel ya, girlfriend.
Our Seal Boat tour went all the way from downtown San Diego to Point Loma.
What's the real difference between snooty and majestic?
The poor regatta sailors were stuck in the water on our way back to land! While the lack of wind didn't help them, I was glad our return to land was warmer than the jaunt out to sea.
Our last day in San Diego, I cajoled my bestie Hailey into waking up at 5:30 a.m. to watch the sunrise on the beach. We returned to Coronado Beach on the backside of the famous Hotel del Coronado. While the clouds obscured a large part of the sunrise, the wind chill was a pleasant 58°, and I enjoyed a short run on the beach before brunch in the Gaslamp Quarter.
The sun rising over the historic Hotel Del and burning off the early clouds.
This was the perfect end to a fantastic trip full of learning new skills, meeting great new vendors and enjoying the beautiful San Diego sunshine.
