We finally all woke up and got going around 9:30, and were out of the camper by sometime after 10. The drive into San Diego was amazingly beautiful. We went ahead and drove downtown to the gaslamp district, and then we drove over a bridge to Coronado Island. The water all around us was the deepest blue I've ever seen, and the sky was gorgeous. We then drove over to Cabrillo National Monument and spent several hours there looking out over San Diego and the port on one side and the vast Pacific Ocean on the other side. Again, so stunning I felt like all my senses couldn't take so much beauty, they were overwhelmed! After a picnic lunch there, we drove over to Mission Beach. Nicole & Noah didn't want to get out (I guess they had had enough walking at the Cabrillo place), so the rest of us got out and walked out to the ocean. Nathan, Nicholas, and I stuck our toes in the water and that's all it took for us Floridians to decide we'd felt enough of that! Brr! It was only like 72 degrees outside, and I don't know what temperature of the water was, but it felt COLD!
After burying Nicholas in the sand up to his neck it was getting to be around 5pm, and we were all ready to get back to our campsite. Tim stopped at a grocery store and bought some spinach & feta cheese stuffed salmon to be grilled, so we came home and he put some charcoals on the grill here and grilled burgers for the kids and the salmon for us. The boys swam while he cooked and I got veggies and other things together. Finally, it was dinner time - one of those times where everyone is in a good mood and everything said is funny. Bunnies were hopping all around us - they were as plentiful as squirrels are in Florida, only cuter! :-) And the food was scrumptious! I still feel like my senses are on overload - how can I take all this amazing beauty in so quickly? I can only hope I can relive it when I read back through this blog and see the pictures. I am too tired to post all the pictures we got today, so I will try to do that tomorrow. Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
