san diego: beach & baseball

Had a lovely day in Sand Diego today.

We spent a few hours at Coronado Beach. The sand was so soft on the feet, and the water was perfect. I body surfed a bit, and got some sun. We watched pelicans as they dive-bombed for fish, and as they flew in formation just above the surf (and within about 10 feet of us). I have a little burn on the shoulders, but it’s not too bad.

Tonight, we went to the Padres-Mariners game at Petco Park. It’s a gorgeous new facility, very good for baseball. The in-park food is also good, but $8 for a draft beer is insane. The Padres won in 10 innings, 2-1.

After the game, we all went back to the house and played Scattergories – good stuff.

Tomorrow: we head back north to Seal Beach, picking up a gift and a bicycle along the way.

  1. Coronado is the prettiest of San Diego’s beaches. You’ll have to come back to see some more beaches that each have their own unique qualities.

    I never understood why the Padres were so bent about wanting a new park. I’d seen Padres games and Qualcomm stadium, and it seemed good enough to me. But now that I’ve been there, I realize just how much nicer it is to watch baseball in a stadium designed for baseball instead of one that doubles as a football stadium. It was more intimate, and you could tell that there were no bad seats.

    I really enjoyed having you guys out here. Come back any time, you are always welcome!
