Aaaand Now the Ending

(I thought I posted this a couple weeks ago!)

Just a few more pics of our time in San Diego.

 We took one day and drove all over town. We saw where my grandparents are buried; I showed Chuck where my dad is interred; We saw the Unconditional Surrender statue that's right by the USS Midway (it's an aircraft carrier and that statue is 25 feet tall!) drove through my old neighborhood, by my high school... after all these years it still seems weird to have something so familiar feel so foreign.

There was a guy blowing bubbles and the kids were going crazy! It was a nice break for the parents. 😊


I applied for my very first job at that Wienerschnitzel! They hadn't opened yet and our training was held around piles of flooring and construction workers. Unfortunately about a week after they opened they let a bunch of us go. But a friend offered me a better job so it all worked out!

But the part of the trip that I relished the most was the view from the balcony in our room. I'd take my tea out there in the morning, I'd write out there, I sat out there a lot. I watched the sailboats go by, the rowing teams... it was peaceful and so beautiful. And I didn't even have to put on shoes!

Sea World was right across the bay and they still had a tree lit up, plus they had fireworks one night.

Woke up one morning to fog. Even the forecasters were surprised!

Oh you guys it was so nice! I wish everyone could take a few days now and then to just get away and do absolutely nothing.

When was the last time you had a little getaway?

Do you have one planned?

What a lovely getaway and your views were wonderful. We do have a little getaway planned for March 14-16th. It will be nice to getaway from the everyday. :)

Love your pictures and that you had such a wonderful relaxing time together, with no pressure. We ought to do's been much too long. Of course, we are retired, so I guess we shouldn't have any pressure...but life has a way of closing in on you even when you are retired. A little vacation away from it all is a great thing to do! Thank you for sharing it with us. Loved it!

The Bahia is a nice place. We stayed there many years ago. We also stayed at Paradise Point back in 2008 and another place by the Marina when the kids were little. It is good to get away.

I love that statue. They have one in Florida and it was so awesome to see in person. Now we need to drive to San Diego! I love all the photos you shared. We went to Arizona for Thanksgiving last year and in September we had driven to Montana. Not ready to fly anywhere.
