I am so glad we went. The cloudy skies gave way to a picture perfect weather day.
One of my favorite places to go in San Diego is Coronado Island. It is only a short drive over the bridge but it feels like a far away vacation destination. I could spend the entire day driving around looking at the adorable cottages and gardens that line the neighborhoods but with little ones in tow I settled for a few wrong turns and some quick phone pictures out the car window.
Our next stop was the famous Hotel Del Coronado. My daughter told the kids the story of the haunting of the hotel by a young woman who went in and never came out. Needless to say, it was the topic of conversation for quite some time. Plus, we had a couple of spectacular fly overs by jets in formation which thrilled my grandson to no end.
We finished the day with delicious ice cream cones that were devoured with much enthusiasm, which is just as ice cream should be eaten.
We joked when we retrieved the car from the parking lot that our little stop for ice cream cost $50.00! Our tiny single scoop cones where $35.00 for the six of us (thanks again, mom) and the parking was another $15.00. A little too rich for my everyday blood but definitely the cherry on the top of a heartwarming day.
So what about you? Any wolf hunting or jet watching or ice cream eating time in your weekend?
