If you have ever been on the 5 Freeway between San Diego and Los Angeles in the springtime you probably have seen the blaze of color on the hills just to the east. The Flower Fields of Carlsbad. It has been on my "things I'd like to do list" ever since I first saw them decades ago. I finally got my wish on Friday night as we snuck away for a quick overnight at Legoland "Cali-A-fornia" as J calls it.
First stop: Legoland for a quick run through 90 minutes before closing.
