|Eating at Jimmy's Famous American Tavern on Point Loma,|
Friday night shortly after arrival in Sandy Eggo.
The grin is from the Guinness. Had fish and chips, they were AMAZING...
These photos kind of relate my overall impression of the trip. Upon which I had a great, great time. Sort of a collage of "what I did in Sandy Eggo."
|Our hotel in Carlsbad, not too shabby I thought.|
|That's our room on the third floor with the triple glass door, curtain open in the middle.|
|Overlooking the pool, that is the Pacific across the road.|
|The drive from Carlsbad to Sandy Eggo is pretty nice. High surf warning that weekend. Lots of spindrift in the air from the surf.|
|Lunch on Saturday afternoon was here. A great little place in downtown Carlsbad, great food, great service.|
|The whole tribe gathered to pig out in honor of L'il Sweetie's christening. (Our waiter Johnny took this and the next photo. A real sweet guy. Did I mention that the food was unbelievable?)|
|The other end of the table. That's the next to youngest granddaughter, The Owl, in the foreground.|
|I had a Guinness (duh) while the ladies attacked a pot of tea. How very English of them.|
|View from our hotel in Sandy Eggo. Again we have a pool view.|
(Two nights in Carlsbad, one night in Sandy Eggo. Life is tough, neh?)
|Right now the hotel has two towers, they're laying the ground work for a third. I really dig the palm trees out there!|
|We were on the fifteenth floor.|
|Looking towards downtown.|
|The nearby marina.|
|The marina (again, okay, I like marinas). Looking past that you can see North Island and beyond you can see Point Loma.|
|We could see two carriers from our perch, Theodore Roosevelt (where we spent Saturday morning) to the left, Carl Vinson (Big Time's new ride) to the right.|
We had an awesome time but all too soon it was back on a plane to head back east.
|The Saturday after the christening. Welcome back to Little Rhody.|
|Sunday after the storm. At least the sun came out. Most of that snow is gone now, scarcely a week later.|
Yes, I love my four seasons. Yes, I like seeing the snow on the ground. But...
There are days I'd rather be in Sandy Eggo, quaffing Guinness and eating seafood, or Mexican food. Maybe both at the same time.
Like I said. A great trip.
