Quality Time.
We made the most of Geoff's one free day. First we tried to get in to the zoo, but there was no parking. None. Then we decided on something really wild, and we rented a fast boat! Hold on tight! We cruised under the Coronado bridge, and all around the harbor. We even saw a swimming seal. I don't know why my corner of the boat was the only part that was getting heavily splashed. Maria and I were fairly soaked by the end of the excursion. She and I laughed, shocked and amused, every time we were hit with a new wave of cold ocean water.


After boating, we walked down to the beach in front of the Del. Max found us an exceptional spot for tunneling in the sand and for burying William up to his neck. Maria loved all the activity, the sand, the digging, the laughter. It was a blue sky beautiful day, with lots of happy people on the beach and boardwalk. There were at least two weddings going on. The warm sun, the smell of the ocean and the feel of the sand, and time relaxing with my husband and children... all good.

Alex is about to put the squeeze on the Del.

We will be sweeping sand from our beds and floors for days, smiling.

  1. These photos made me miss my San Diego home. I'm realizing, as the years go by, that I missed out on a lot of what San Diego has to offer.

    We do have family there still - so we need to make a trip down there in the near future. It'll be good to get reacquainted with the city.

  2. Last year we were living here like it was our *farewell tour* and we made a point of seeing lots of hot spots. It's interesting how much effort it takes to look at your hometown from a fresh perspective, but it can definitely be worthwhile. Someday I know we'll get together... maybe we'll meet at the beach!
