Couldn't miss taking a photo of the sunset over Coronado Island from our 'social room.'
Dinner on Coronado Island at the '1887 on the Bay' restaurant. Shirley brought the bucket of golf balls and decorated it with the OSU flag.

A view from the other end of the table!
Shirley also brought a box of nearly warm cookies that she baked just before leaving home for us to enjoy as dessert!
Paul and Anna Koons making the big decision of the day - what to have for dinner!
Jim Remington trying to hide behind the OSU flag!
Yes, that is about how close our hotel was to the San Diego Airport (well, maybe this was make closer with a very nice camera!), but the airport is very close.
Another one of those great sunset pictures!
Looks like a serious business meeting - "Where do we go to dinner this evening???'
Dorance, Anna, Tanya, and Paul

Starting our tour at the Balboa Park Air and

Our guide was very informative
 
We start our tour inside the Museum.

Looking out from the Air and Space Museum
A view out our hotel room window. There were often sailboats and other watercraft in the bay.
Diving past the "Baby Dell" on our San Diego Trolly Tour. The home was moved from San Diego, across the bay, to Coronado. The owner felt it looked much like the Hotel Del Coronado, the house assumed the name the "Baby Dell."

About 10am one morning a cruise ship pulls in directly across from our hotel.

Our server taking our picture at Anthony's Fish Grotto Restaurant.

Got everyone in the picture this time! Jim Remington and the Koons had to leave earlier that day, so our numbers dropped to seven.
After dinner we went to Lambís Players Theatre, in the Gas Light District, to see the play The 39 Steps.
The play was a stage adaptation of the Alfred Hitchcock movie from the same name. The four actors who played multiple characters were very good and filled it with laughs.
Another view out our hotel windows of several of the ships included in the museum tour in the area.
One afternoon when we had some free time,
the Hornsby's walked to the Kansas City Barbecue restaurant made famous in the Tom Cruise
movie Top Gun.
Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis poster from the Top Gun movie inside the restaurant.
The Kansas City Barbecue is right across the street from the Convention Center -
making it a popular stop for many visiting the city .
Their awnings advertise their specially.
We had to take a picture of the Westgate Hotel - right in downtown San Diego!
Dorance and Jack Hornsby got adventuresome one afternoon and took a tour on a Segway. Their group was just the 3rd one who toured Balboa Park. The tour group had just received approval to take tours in to the park. The tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours.
