O' the Joys of San Diego...

Last month I had the opportunity to be in San Diego A LOT.  It seems that each of my trips for the month had at least one night in San Diego and some of them two nights.  That being said, I had quite a bit of time to pass on my overnights.  One beautiful, sunny afternoon, I rented a bicycle right next door to our hotel and took off for Coronado Island.  This island is approximately 7.4 sq. miles connected to San Diego by the San Diego - Coronado Bridge.  This island is a walker/runner/bicyclists dream as it has over 15 miles of dedicated bike / rollerblading paths.  It is a quaint place to visit with beautiful beaches and the stunning Hotel Del Coronado which is a MUST SEE when visiting San Diego.Hotel Del Coronado On my next visit to San Diego, I took off for a leisurely walk to Balboa ParkBalboa Park Balboa Park is home to 15 major museums and the must see San Diego ZooSanDiego Zoo Panda's For my next trip, I set off in the opposite direction and found Horton's Plaza.  Horton's Plaza is an outdoor mall with some great shopping and a great wine bar, called the Napa Valley Grille.  Check out their Wine Flights.  They have some of the best California wines for tasting!  After doing a little bit of shopping, I headed down to Seaport Village.  Seaport Village is a tourist trap, but has some great shopping and dining.  I bought myself a beautiful silver ring and some trinkets for my nieces and nephews.  On my next visit, I took off on a Hornblower Dinner Cruise. This was a lot of fun and I saw one of the most beautiful sunsets.  If you are looking at the possiblity of being a Flight Attendant, you say this job might be work (and it is), but being able to enjoy my overnights and seeing this beautiful country that we live in, is a definite PLUS!

I am in the Navy and I have the joy of being stationed in San Diego on board the USS Nimtz. I am out to sea at the moment, but we all look forward to pulling back into paradise. San Diego has so much to offer and they are very hospitable to us in the military. GO CHARGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
