Christmas had passed, friends and family had come and gone, but we were forced to linger in California, for on Sunday, Steve, our eldest, would turn 50 and a surprise party was planned for Saturday. Anyway, we hadn’t visited and exchanged gifts with Andrew and his crew yet, so it was down to San Diego for us. We couldn’t let Steve know we were still around, and Andrew’s house is tiny, so we had to find a hotel. I found the best deal at the Harbor Island Sheraton, and it turned out that we had a beautiful room at a very reasonable price.
We did a lot of running around those couple of days in San Diego, as we exchanged more gifts with our family, but when we were in our room, we quite enjoyed the stunning view–both during the day and at night. San Diego is a magnificent city.
After we had eaten, we walked Harbor Drive toward Seaport village where between the cruise ship terminal and Seaport Village is the famed ship, the Midway. In a later post I will write of that magnificent and honored vessel.
