I packed some picnic type stuff in a cooler so that we could do our daytime meals at rest stops, which worked out really great.
When Lynn is busy in his meetings, I get out and about in whatever city we are in. San Diego, it turns out has a wonderful light rail system. Right across the street from our hotel was a station. This is a photo I took from inside the train. It is a great way to check out the city.
I love checking out new flora in different areas. Here is a nice shot of some of the native greenery, again, taken from the train window.
the ties together....
One day I took the train, and a bus out to a wonderful little knit shop. Found a great project and bought some yarn to make a gift for Krista. I wish I had gotten some photos of this shop to share.
Once back in the city, I kept my trusty camera with me. This was an amazing PURPLE tree!!
I haven't yet found anyone to tell me what kind of tree this is....
This is how the malls work in southern California. Outdoors.
And I thought this was a FABULOUS idea. People really were playing checkers and chess together with this big painted boards, and large pieces.
Can you see these orange flowers on this cool tree???
And the trunk and branches were amazing too.
I did get a close up of the flowers, just love it!
I caught just the last moment of this beautiful sunset, from our hotel window on the last night of our stay in San Diego.
Tomorrow, I'll post some photos of the trip heading back up the coast.
