Hello Happy Campers-we've arrived in San Diego-land of sunshine and crazy drivers –sorry to my California friends. We are on our way to Silver Strand State Beach on Coronado Island, just south of the infamous Coronado Hotel. I’m having those lovely visions of beach camping, a glowing campfire at night, playing with Hailey at on the beach-you get the picture.
Unlocking the gate so we can escape !
We ventured out to Old Town. Jim has never been to San Diego and I've promised to bring him back to explore even more of this beautiful city. We had lunch at the Café Coyote-can you say stuffed to the gills and operating under the influence of their famous margaritas?
We met the best shopkeeper ever-Susan at the Mermaid Cove-I wanted to buy everything I saw in her shop-very reasonable and such beautiful gifts. My friend Linda would go crazy in this shop devoted to mermaids! Jim my bookkeeper, kept me under control! I did buy a “few” gifts for the condo ! I’m sure my brother in law Jorge is wondering where I’m putting everything in Ruby- we are just about filled to capacity. For the rest of our visit we wandered through Old Town just enjoying the day and people watching.
Wild man before the haircut !
We discovered there is one place where dogs can be dogs and run like crazy on the beach. It’s a beach just behind the Coronado Hotel all the way north along Dana Harbor Dr until you come to the Naval base entrance. Hailey loved it-she ran and swam until she was ready to drop and then we headed back to the prison-er campground.
Beautiful Coronado Hotel
Well we are off to the desert -saying good bye to the beautiful Pacific Ocean-but only for now-we will return again. Heading off to Palm Springs -need a house to have my new phone delivered to and my friends David & Sal were kind enough to welcome us to use their place.
Happy Trails, I wish sunshine and blue skies for all of you.
