In Our Own Backyard

Hotel del Coronado and Coronado Bridge

 first of all, thank you soooo much for your support and comments regarding my inside out project idea!  i have created an “inside out” page you can click on to read more details.  as things develop, i will update the page and keep it in the tabs above.

now, for the backyard….do you have cool places close to you that you rarely visit?  in san diego we have lots of these.  places we like but we tend to save for visiting guests.  some of the places, like the one here – cabrillo national monument – don’t allow dogs so we have stayed away for a loooong time.

but in the “venturing” spirit,  we decided to drop everything right in the middle of the week and head down there.  ok, it didn’t hurt that we have been having summer-like weather over here for quite a while now!

there’s an amazing old lighthouse:

and a new lighthouse too:

and a hike:

and best of all, those fabulous views of the city!

 lest you all start packing your bags and heading over…. (although seriously, i would love that!) i should probably make it clear that this isn’t entirely typical.  it happens, but right now is usually the heart of the rainy season…. complete with fog, drizzle and gray skies… probably just delayed until february!
