So we kicked off our final full day in San Diego once again with rain but we took the ferry over to Coronado Island and to the Del Coronado to have brunch with my mom's cousin and his wife. She is the hotel manager there so they took us to brunch and then for a wonderful tour of the property. They had put up their Christmas decorations a little early this year which was wonderful to see. Here is the tree in the lobby, reminded me of Marshall Fields and the Walnut Room back in the day.
Family picture with everyone after brunch in front of the tree!
After the Del it started to clear up a little and we went to Old Town later in the afternoon, took a few pictures there but I thought this one was pretty..and the weather was starting to get nice so I could not resist.
Here are Jared and I before we caught the ferry back to downtown from Coronado
The last day we were there had the best weather so we got up early and headed to La Jolla since I had told the family it would be so much better seeing on a sunny day. Here is a picture of all of the guys and beautiful background...
Jared and I in La Jolla, so pretty wish we could have that view here in Texas!
Just a few more pictures of the pretty view and the waves crashing against the shore.
We also got to see many of the seals on the beach sunning themselves, it was very funny to see how they inch themselves up the beach. There were also a lot of younger seals playing in the water which was pretty cute.
More pretty pictures...
Jared walked out on the pier where the waves kept crashing over...just before that the lifeguard had closed off half this area and he managed not to get too wet.
Jared down by the rocks...he would have gone all the way in the water if it wasn't so cold.
Nice picture of Mom and Dad. Everyone but me got Del Coronado sweatshirts since it was so cold while we were there. We looked like a walking postcard at one point on the trip ;)
One of the seals managed to get up on this rock below, as we were watching more came up but any other males were "barked" away by this seal since he was there first...
After my parents left for the airport Jared and I walked down by the other ships in the harbour. Tyler had called these the pirate ships the whole time. They were pretty interesting and there was a submarine there too that had just been taken out of active duty last year.
So long to San Diego, we had a wonderful time even though it was rainier and colder than we expected. We were still able to see and do just about everything we planned and had a wonderful birthday trip with my family!!
