We decided to visit Point Loma and Coronado Island, selecting just two sights of the many things to do in San Diego.
We saw one sea lion, many surfers, no gray whales, and miles and miles of Pacific Ocean. Every vista was stunning.

We drove to Coronado Island, forgoing the ferry for the sake of time. The beaches were empty, but the scenery was breathtaking. We enjoyed the sun deck at the Hotel Del Coronado. Perfect afternoon.

We walked a lot! It was about two miles each way to our Starbucks in the morning and we walked a few miles during our travels the rest of the day. We enjoyed dinner at a San Diego staple, Phil's BBQ. We arrived right before the line formed outside of the door. We didn't feel one bit guilty about our baby-back ribs, bbq chicken,1/2 lb cheeseburger, fries, baked beans, coleslaw, and a whoopie pie. It was a perfect day to see as much as possible in San Diego, CA. Til next time......
