San Diego

In San Diego, we revisited some of our favourite spots.


Shelter Island



Shelter Island's marina



La Jolla






La Jolla is a northern suburb known for its scenic cove...





...and its exclusive boutiques, where even dogs and cats feel at home.




                                                       Point Cabrillo









Seaport Village

These yachts have a great view of the Coronado Bridge.



At Balboa Park, we revisited the Air and Space Museum and saw some new things, too.

At the Automotive Museum we saw a vintage MG!

The Jaguar is always gorgeous, whether it's new or old.



The Air and Space Museum's balcony overlooks busy Highway 5.




Coronado

On our last day we visited Coronado Island. They call it an island, but it's really a separate city and a peninsula. You either have to go over the mile-long blue Coronado Bridge or take a much longer, but scenic, inland route to get there over the Silver Strand



The Hotel Del Coronado was built in 1888 and is an historical landmark. "Some Like It Hot" was  filmed there in 1958. The Prince of Wales and Mrs. Simpson probably met there at a party in the 1920s.
I like to write in the hotel's bar which overlooks the Pacific.
