We left early, hit McDonalds for a quick breakfast and met up with Jerry’s brother Harry for a full whirlwind of a day in and around San Diego.
Our first stop was Old Town San Diego. We wandered through the Old Town buildings, and did some pre-shopping for our trip to Mexico.
Next we drove to La Jolla and then to Imperial beach.
We got to Balboa Park near closing time so we did a quick trip around the grounds, looked in on the Japanese Garden, Botanical Building and Lily Pond. Even though time was short the buildings alone are worth the trip.
We stopped in for a late lunch at Soda & Swine (meatballs are the specialty but they had great salads too)! Next stop was the Hotel Del Coronado which was lovely! It’s been around since 1887 and is very impressive! It sits on a beautiful beach and has tons of old world charm. The elevator and the chandelier were really cool!
After a full day of touring the hot spots in San Diego we kicked back with Harry and Suzanne and had an awesome meal at home before we hit the hay. It was lights out in no time. What a great day!
