On the Road Again!

Well here I am in SanDiego, California!

Leaving early morning has its advantages...
The commuter flight from Binghamton, NY to Washington Dulles Airport was mostly uneventful.  I had a chance to see a live concentric circle quilting design over the sunrise!
 My husband made the flight from Dulles to SanDiego interesting by bringing his GPS along!  How cool is this?  I finished this Needle Turn leaf somewhere between West Virginia and Ohio!  Hello down there Deb Strain, Debbie Wicks family and the lovely ladies from Sauder Village!  
It was really cool to see the air speed And the elevation.  I'm always looking out the window and wondering where we are... The GPS had all the answers!
I've been fortunate to see many beautiful parts of California but this is my first time to SanDiego.  I'm excited to visit the Zoo, Coronado, Cafe Coyote, and make a trip to Roses Calico Cupboard (fingers crossed).

Check out the Pet Facilities at the airport!  Can you imagine?
Because I've been a bit under the weather we took it easy the first day here.  We strolled to a nearby shopping area to pick up some essentials...  I was in awe of this tree along he path to the market...
And this is the somewhat drizzly view from our room looking toward downtown SanDiego.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!

If you live in California or have visited and have other recommendations send them along!  I would love to hear your experiences!  I'm here for a conference but it doesn't start until Monday evening...  Until then were just tourists.

Have a great weekend all.
Hugs,
Karen

  2. The Country Loft is always a favourite stop when I go to San Diego along with a visit to the Zoo.

    If you like Italian food check out Fillipi's Pizzza Grotto, I love their pasta dishes.

    The Hotel Del Coronado is another lovely destination to check out. Enjoy your visit and time off the west coast.

  8. The GPS is a great idea and one that wouldn't have been possible until a few weeks ago when the rules became more lenient regarding electronic devices (DH pointed this out to me). Enjoy!!!!!!!
