I started to post this Thursday morning, but VOX hosed up, and I zonked out, so here I am! ^^
My friend Shane from Florida came out on business, but had Wednesday afternoon free. I took the day off and met up with him in the Gaslamp District. (The old part of downtown San Diego, that has been rehabilitated with fine entertainment and dining places. Wyatt Earp lived there after the shootout at the OK Corral!) Shane was staying at the new Marriott next to Petco Park, the new San Diego Padres ballpark. He had the Presidential Suite, which was awesome! Fantastic views of the Bay, Petco Park, The convention Center, the Bay Bridge, Coronado, including the famous Hotel Del Coronado, where Some Like It Hot was filmed!
We went touring the local establishments, like Hooters^^, Cafe Sevilla (yah Gema!!), Hard Rock Cafe and the restaurant/bar that the widow of Jim Croce has called Croce's… We had a *real* good time!! 😛 Sleeping on the couch in the suite was moe comfortable than my bed! Especially with the magnificent HD 45" wide screen TV in there. I got up early and took a few pictures around the hotel and Petco Park. Shane had to be in Phoenix (where we were roomies many years ago) So we had a nice breakfast in the hotels outdoor restaurant, and I headed home… @@
