Greetings from San Diego!

Baby Giraffe We just got back from about a week in sunny San Diego, and I'm still readjusting to the time change, so will write more later. However, suffice it to say that I had a blast! We visited the fabulous San Diego Zoo and the incredible Wild Animal Park, watched seals play in the Pacific Ocean at La Jolla, walked the lovely beach at Coronado where the mica content of the sand makes it shimmer just like gold, toured the Birch Aquarium at Scripps where we watched the keepers feed the sharks, strolled through the multitude of museums and lavish gardens at Balboa Park, visited the lighthouse at Cabrillo Cabrillo Lighthouse and naturally sampled much of the fine dining in the area. In addition, we watched a very lifelike exhibit where robotic dinosaurs stomped their feet, moved their heads and tails, and growled! We also took a 3D, edge of your whirling seat ride which shook, bucked and twisted to match the narration from the "pilots" on a simulated ride to "Dinosaur Island" which kept me laughing the whole time. Naturally, I'm totally exhausted from the plane ride, waiting hours in the airport for layover, and the subsequent time change, so that is all for now, but I'll try and write some more later. However, Steve did take literally hundreds of photos which are in his gallery Here - enjoy!
