It’s June 21st, the longest day of the year. So we squeezed every minute out of it that we could stand on this, our 4th day here in SoCal.

While I was in class, hubs walked to the border. Just for kicks, I guess, because he doesn’t have a passport.

I skipped lunch out and came to the room to get the quiet time my body and mind have been pushing me to hurry up and find.

I had my daily donut fix waiting on me when I walked in

This, my friends, is a PopTart donut. There is “lit’rally” a PopTart in the center of this thing and it was also full of strawberry filling.

I finished up my afternoon of class and headed back to the room to put down my BINDER O LEARNING MATERIAL and then Shey and I headed out for the evening.

We walked to the Broadway pier and took a ferry across the bay to Coronado.

The ferry ride was quick, but cold. Yes, COLD. In June. My body is so damn confused. No humidity? No heat? 2 hours later? WTF?

We only had about 2 and a half hours to spend on the island so we started immediately walking toward the beach. And I immediately wished I had at least ONE pair of shoes that didn’t kill me and joints that were better suited to tourism. But whatever, I kept walking. And walking. And freakin walking.

It was an interesting walk too, because there are some COOL homes in Coronado. This one looked like something out of a storybook to me

I also found my Episopal homies

The main reason I decided on this particular destination for tonight’s excursion was for this

I mean, if it was good enough for Marilyn, it’s good enough for me!

The Hotel Del Coronado sits right on the Pacific, which was reason 2 that I wanted to visit it.

And it’s National Selfie Day, so, ha! Take that! I’m checking off bucket list items in mine!

We took an Uber back to the pier because I am a wuss, but I was never so happy to ride in a car in my life.

Once we got back to the pier, we grabbed a pie and tucked in like the starving animals we were.

The view didn’t suck either

We enjoyed the nighttime skyline from our vantage point and on the ferry ride back to Broadway.

The USS Midway was lit up with patriotic colors.

Once we got back on dry land, we headed back in the direction of the hotel, and I snapped a few photos of the nighttime scenes.

This looks like something an Avenger should be protecting…

There were several of these in front of a Bank of America I think?

Also, this photobomber

And one without

Tomorrow is the last day of class and we let out early. Shey and I plan on taking full advantage of the free time. I need to rest up now, so I will leave you with one final picture of the great signage all over this historic part of town that has been our home all week. Hasta Luego!
