Seaport Village San Diego might look like a regular shopping center when it’s closed and no one is there, but when the sun is out and it’s time to play, this place is a traveler’s delight. Seaport Village San Diego is full of great entertainment, attractions, shopping and dining that – combined with an excellent San Diego Harbor view – truly makes it our place to be every summer. My daughter, Leo ,Geo and I had a wonderful time biking this beautiful coast. This Village has 14 acres of fun boutiques, great dining and seasonal live music and events. My  family and I usually spend a day or two enjoying this great escape. Seaport Village San Diego is close enough to Downtown San Diego that you can get there easily, but far enough that it’s a great escape. A must see California coast, hope everyone had a great Mother’s day !

A Glorious Summer Part 2…

When the sun was setting is when we had a lot of fun taking some family photos. Leo is in mid-air in this 1st family photo. I love to shoot family photos at this beach especially at this time of day , the colors are amazing! The white sand,  the dark blue waters , the pink sunset is why this is one of the Top 10  beaches in America. I would like to come back here every year with a photographer so we could all get in the same  picture.

Next post our  bike adventure.

Have a great week !

A Glorious Summer…

A glorious summer in sunny California, it doesn’t get better than San Diegos Hotel Del Coronado. We stayed in San Diego for about a week and bike everywhere but the highlight of our trip was this glorious place. The sun was setting and the weather was warm with a beautiful pink sunset. We had dinner at the Boat House and the food was amazing. Darrill said this was one of the top ten beaches in the world. I can see why.

Have a great weekend !

Sailing the San Diego Bay

Ever wonder how a sailboat can actually sail at an angle into the wind? Because of the shape of the sails, the boat is actually pulled windward, not, as most people think, simply pushed along by the wind. It was fun to learn the science of how sails work and all the terms.The first step in learning how to sail a small sailboat is to learn about the different parts of the boat and its rigging. Lamar is an expert sailor so he taught us a lot in these few hours and Hunter and Darrill worked the second sail while Leo chartered our course. I learned how to steer the sailboat, and was amazed how powerful the wind took the sails. We sailed untill the sun went down.

Next post biking the San Diego bay, have a wonderful week !

Sleazy Bar Scene…Filmed Here !

Day three of San Diego. What can I say, I loved the movie Top Gun,  so when Darrill said lets eat where they filmed The Sleazy bar scene from “Top Gun” at the  Kansas City Barbeque , I was so excited. I didn’t want Darrill to know how excited I was so I acted cool, and said something dumb like . ”  really, BIG DEAL”. Well it was a big deal, I loved Tom Cruise  in Top Gun, and I acted like a silly tourist and took a lot of pictures…

The food wasn’t that great, but that didn’t matter, I loved the fact we had a beer and a sandwich, probably the same one Tom Cruise had in 1985, now I know that was a long time ago, but so what !  I enjoyed every minute of our lunch !!!
