I realize I’m so far behind on the blog. So far behind that I’m not liking it one bit. So I decided today that I would compress mom and dad’s rest of the visit into one (huge) post. Be prepared for lots of pix in this entry.
A pic of us in the garden.
This was my parents second full day, a day we wanted to just chill around the house.
This picture was taken on our street several doors down.
It truly was a day filled with lots of this…
And gathering around this table for great outdoor dining.
And this was brought into the mix each day.
Ah, evenings around the fire, so nice…
The next day (Sunday) we worshiped at Shadow Mountain in San Diego
My parents from where we were sitting.
A visit to Old Town Sunday afternoon.
Where we stopped for a little Sunday dinner.
Pop noticed the sign, I wanted a pic of him with it.
Back home in the backyard… A nice place to relax during the afternoon/evening hours.
One of the many massive boulders in our backyard. If pop could have slipped this baby in his suitcase, I believe it would be in his backyard back home.
My parents in the backyard after a day well spent.
This brings us to our last full day together. Monday June 13th was the day we went to Point Loma.
It was a day to enjoy the Pacific, where the ocean and cliffs meet.
We watched this ship sail out of the harbor…
And enjoyed the view. The sign below warns of the recent falling rock.
Even though the sun was still hiding that morning, we found beauty in this day.
The view below of the cliffs (where we were earlier) as we drove up to the top of Point Loma.
Point Loma – My parents with the National Monument.
A view of the harbor, Navy Base and downtown San Diego from the other side of Point Loma. The sun was working hard to chase the clouds away.
Our next stop (the same day) was Mount Soledad.
The sweeping views from there are amazing. Looking North up the coast of southern California.
From Mount Soledad looking south. We can see downtown San Diego on the left meeting the horizon. We can also see Mexico, Point Loma, Coronado Island and many other cool places from the top of this mountain.
At day’s end, we enjoyed our last dinner outdoors and our last visit around the fire.
Soon darkness fell and our fire went out. The next best thing to do was to come indoors and shoot pool. Another important thing was to bake fresh oatmeal choc chip cookies. And yes, fresh coffee was served. Then again, we had fresh coffee morning and evening each day (while they were in town) whether we needed it or not.
This wraps up our nice little family visit with my parents. We were so delighted to see them and already look forward to our next visit.
