San Diego, the last days


My friend Melissa and I in Spokane Airport getting ready for our trip to beautiful San Diego!
The trip was to our companies Celebration, but the pictures below are of the last day we spent in SD. We had a blast. I will write about Celebration at a later date. The pictures are courtesy of Melissa, I, gasp, didn't take my fancy camera, because I wanted to live this event, not photograph it.


The Weston Gaslamp. Our home for 5 days.


What I'd been waiting for...my feet in salt water. Does it get any better?


Tarra and I astern, see how I'm getting a hang of the pirate talk? Yar Matey!


Tarra, Melissa and I (I'm in the middle with the huge grin--I'm on water, woohoo!)


Landing at Coronado


The end of the US!


Sea Lions lounging.

The boat used in the Pirates of the Caribbean

The last stop on the trip, Salt Lake City and then we were home, again.

I am, Michael, I have a sense of well-being that I've not had in forever. I think it comes from being super healthy.

You look fabulous, Laurie! So glad you enjoyed San Diego. I love that city. Lived there for three years in the 90s.

Laurie said...

Nick, it was a blast in every way. I learned a lot and had a great time! Woohooo!!

Ponita, I feel much better than I look. And lucky you! I would LOVE to live there if even for a short time.

I HAVE been to Salt Lake City though to cover the Olympics. Still great pix!

WW, San Diego is absolutely gorgeous. The temperature stays around 65-80 all the time (so they say) and it's very laid back and friendly. I am in love with it! We laid over in Salt Lake City both ways, but I didn't see anything other than the salt flats from the air and the airport.

Within Without said...

It's got really nice mountains as I recall and the city proper is nestled in amongst those mountains...

Laurie said...

Yes, I could sort of see that on our flight over. I wasn't in the window seat either way.

Avast ye, Matey!
