We have traveled alot this summer - 2 weeks on our cruise and in Spain, 1 week visiting family in Indiana and Ohio, 6 days visiting colleges, and finally Frank and I took a weekend without children in LA/San Diego. Sarah and Chris purchased tickets to a Padres game from the St. Monica auction and invited Frank and I to come along. We rounded out the weekend with a trip to the beach at Coronado Island, a visit to Del Mar racetrack, a Dodgers game, and a stroll on Venice Beach.
At the Hotel Del Coronado
(incredibly soft sand!)
Petco Park in SD
(we stayed next door and took the bridge across to the game)
(where we lost almost every bet)
(home of the infamous Dodger dog and it was $1 night)
Who knew eating a hot dog required such facial contortions?
(where our visit coincided with a Hare Krishna festival)
It was very nice to have a relaxing, busy weekend. Without tired, hungry, grouchy, demanding children along we enjoyed doing lots of stuff and a little bit of nothing.
