San Diego #worktravel

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.

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.

I’m not a big fan of chotskies and souveniers, but I did bring back some Mexican candies for J and a California tan.

  1. Doris and I were there in 1992 and loved it, we spent an entire day at the zoo and a day in Tiahuna(don’t know how to spell it) Mexico, we were there in July and the ocean was freezing, people that spent time on the beach at night would build big bon fires to keep warm.
