I just returned home from a two week visit to San Diego. This was my first visit to California, and I can’t wait to make a return trip with J. The weather was perfect…70 degrees, sunny, and a light breeze every day. The seafood was great and the scenery was amazing. If you haven’t been there yet, San Diego should be a must on everyone’s travel list.
San Diego and Coronado Island
Bridge between Coronado and San Diego
Hotel del Coronado is a magnificent beach getaway built in 1888. It is celebrating its 125th birthday this year!
San Diego has a large military population, mostly made up of the Navy and Marines. Below is the USS Recruit (USS Neversail), which was commissioned July 27, 1949. It is 2/3 scale model ship used to train around 50,000 Navy recruits. It is the only Navy commissioned ship to never reach water.
Sail boats in the Bay
I’m not a big fan of chotskies and souveniers, but I did bring back some Mexican candies for J and a California tan.
