San Diego, California

It's possible that San Diego has the most pleasant weather in the continental United States. The average temperature is 72 degrees due to a phenomenon called the "marine layer"...


We spent the night in Julian, California. They used to mine gold there but now they mostly bake pies and cater to tourists.


 We hit San Diego about 10 in the morning and parked at the 1,400 acre Balboa Park. It has 14 museums and the San Diego zoo.


 We had some of these at our home in Tampa, but they seem to thrive here. I think they are called "bird of paradise" flowers.


We spent two nights on the beach. The boardwalk has a lot of young "hard-bodies" skateboarding, jogging, roller-skating  and jogging...


 We see two more presidential libraries in this area. Nixon's is up n San Clemente and Reagan's is in North L. A.  Maybe we can see them both tomorrow?


 I'd also like to see the Sequoia trees and Maybe Yosemite again before we start back to Las Vegas and then Arizona.


The San Diego Art Museum was worth the visit.


 Downtown.


 Train station.


 The Star of India and Mrs. Phred.

We had lunch in the old Coronado Hotel on Coronado Beach.
