I flew down early landing at 9:30am. This meant I had exactly 9 1/2 hours before I needed to be anywhere. Ready? Explore!
|So, I walked into this famous hotel,|
|Checked-in in this lobby,|
|And, got a key for THIS room.... Oh, what's behind those curtains you ask?|
|BOOM. I had this view. Bananas, I tell you. I was going bananas.|
|This tiny morsel of a window had a direct west facing view of all beach.|
At this time I had about 8 hours to do a bike tour of the island, read, lunch, swim, walk on the beach & eat ice cream, MooTime ice cream.
|Rented a bike for 3 hours & toured this tiny yet scenic island.|
|(Lifted this map from internet.)|
|This is the Coronado Bridge, (the 2nd most popular bridge to jump, following the Golden Gate & leading in front of our Aurora Bridge...) Other than that sad fact, it really is beautiful.|
|After riding, I hit the pool & read. But, when you're in such a beautiful place like this, I felt guilty being at the pool & not sitting at the "real pool" 50 yards away.|
|So, I hit the beach.|
|My room is pretty much in the center of this photo, top corner.|
|I will go back someday...|
|Fortunately there was a DDD restaurant here. This place & it's bacon was my saving grace.|
Without a minute to spare - I flew home, ate dinner with the fam & was around to give my son his birthday gifts before tucking my big 3 year old into bed.
|Happy Birthday sweet Axey Benj. Mama loves you!|
