I played tour guide today for my buddy Jeffery from New Orleans who is paying his first visit to San Diego this week.
We started at Point Loma's Cabrillo National Monument, which provides a sweeping view of the city, the bay and the ocean.
Then it was off to the famous Hotel Del in Coronado. Jeffery seemed to like starting the new year with a walk on the beach.
In a display of winter decadence perhaps only possible in a place like SoCal, a couple dozen people skated around an ice rink erected along the beach next to the hotel.
One of Jeffery's friends in New Orleans told him last week to take in a sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Mission accomplished!
