Hi!Posted: April 18, 2008 | |
(Sign on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. April 2008)
After a whirlwind trip that took us to Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Ocean City (NJ), and hiking in the mountains of Pennsylvania, we’re home.
The plan is to stay for a while. It’ll be nice to get settled back in. My house is a bit of a tip after all the traveling. It will get worse next week when we have a little remodeling done. We’re finally going to put up shelving in our spare bedroom — which we’re turning into a library/guest room — but before that happens we’re having new windows installed. The current windows do not give a good view of the pond unless you’re a tall person. They’re small and high up. The new windows are picture windows so the view will improve drastically.
While we’re at it, we decided to have patio doors installed where there are currently picture windows in the dining room. The long-term plan is to build a deck back there. Having the doors installed might spur us on towards realizing that plan/dream.
So, I have a bit of work to do in terms of getting caught up around the house and cleaning out the spare bedroom. In between, I’ll work on posting some more photos from San Diego.
One of the first things we did when we arrived in San Diego was visit something we missed the first time around:
(Unconditional Surrender. Port of San Diego, CA. April 2008)

Because we couldn’t check into our condo until later in the day, we wandered around the waterfront for a little while, and then drove to Point Loma and Cabrillo. The contrast between our visit to Cabrillo in November 2007 and this visit was astounding. I had no idea of the view that was hidden behind the clouds and fog of November. I’ll have some photos for comparison posted soon.
In the meantime, I leave you with a few more photos taken from the Port of San Diego. Enjoy.
