California Dreamin.............

This past Summer when we went to California it was an awesome trip!!! Seeing family was the best part..........I'll have to admit, California isn't Georgia...I found that out when I had to explain the process of making sweet tea to a very nice young waitress , she just looked bewildered and offered me some kind of raspberry tea instead....I tried it and quickly changed my mind......Coke Please! ....

We also learned a few more important traveling details, things I'm sure will come in handy the next time we fly...Being parents of a son who works for Delta is awesome...We fly for free!!!! Coming home on a busy business day (Monday) isn't awesome....We didn't come home on Monday....But our luggage did..Sitting at a airport watching completely full planes take off one after another headed toward Atlanta...Was not fun...Neither was being stuck in one airport while your clean underwear was in another.......Next time we fly, our game plan will be a little different(I will keep clean undies in my purse)....I can't wait to go back and visit longer...Thought I would share a few pics of the trip with you...

We were treated like royalty....My Uncle and Aunt drove us around town and took us out to Supper in my Uncles baby....A 1932 Buick that he restored to it's original show room look...I felt like I was going to the prom...This car was beautiful!


The enormous mast on the Star of India at the Maritime Museum

Beautiful San Diego Bay

San Diego was beautiful!!!!! We could have stayed there longer.....


This water was 62 degrees, I looked around at the people in the water and the ones sitting on the beach wrapped up in blankets and thought to my self....This ain't the Gulf Coast...The dome shape in the background is where the Spruce Goose used to be stored.



Standing on top of Signal Hill.....The view was breathtaking!!!

Just one of the beautiful doors at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre

Yes, San Diego is very pretty. My daughter and I visited there several times via ship. We, too, toured the Star of India.

Very nice images. Thanks for sharing. :)

Hello my Queen! I bet you felt like a queen riding around in that awesome car! Sweet!

San Diego is nice. I am from Southern Calif., and I went to San Diego a few times.

Looks, and sounds like you had fun. Glad you had a nice trip.

Great pics. The Bay is way too beautiful.
I always take a carry on with me to avoid the lack of possible clean clothing. Luckily we haven't had our luggage take a different plane than us.

Pryers being said for your daughter and her husband.

I grew up in Calif. and my parents had friends that lived in the San Diego area. I enjoyed the trips we took there. Haven't been back in years though. Wonderful pics...the car is beautiful, the photo of the mast is stunning against the brilliant blue sky and the Signal Hill photo is breathtaking! Thanks for sharing.

Great photos. San Diego is one of my favorite places, too. Never feel like I get enough time there.

Take care and have a great week!
