We've had a lovely last day in California, starting with meeting my friend Tim from high school and his family for breakfast:
We met Tim for breakfast in the summer of 2001 when we stopped in California on our way back from Hawaii:
After breakfast, we hung out in the hotel for the afternoon, leaving briefly for a little stroll when housekeeping came by to make the beds. Here are Fred and Annabelle shivering by the water:
More trees, freaky or just plain pretty:
One of the rescue seals in the Bahia Resort Seal Pool:
Later in the afternoon, we drove downtown to the waterfront for an amazing supper at The Fish Market. Two mojitos later, I decided we had to have this shot in front of the USS Midway:
My final act in San Diego was stopping by the side of the road to take cuttings of the amazing succulent that grows everywhere:
I'm going to take them home and try to root them.
It has been a lovely visit to California, but I am eager to get back home to Kansas!
Happy Russia Day
