Kona Kai Resort San Diego
Winter Wanderlust: Stay Sunny, San Diego

Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email Kona Kai Resort & Marina Kona Kai Resort & Marina is nestled on Shelter Island in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. The drive on/off island is just over a mile long and only a few hundred feet wide. Kona Kai Resort lives up to its name—it is a resort, a destination in itself. Though a downtown jaunt is only a short drive where you can wonder around the popular Gaslamp District, it’s easy to spend your entire trip without leaving Shelter Island’s shores. Kona Kai is exquisitely manicured with views of the bay on one side and the marina on the other. Since the island is narrow, rooms on either side of the resort boast great views.

Music Madness: Ben Howard

Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email Howard Finds Himself in I Forget Where We Were Who: Ben Howard established himself as a prominent UK folk artist with the release of his first album Every Kingdom back in 2011, a beautiful reflection of positivity,  and collection of catchy love lyrics sure to appeal to audiences everywhere. Each song on the album felt as if you were sharing a personal moment with the artist, yet just when you thought he might dive deep and reveal something bigger, he ended the trance and brought you back up with his cute hums, whistles, and winks. The album was a quintessential catch 22; I loved everything about it, the transition from Old Pine, to Everything and what (more…)
