The last few weeks have been full of distractions. Exciting presidential primaries. Stress at the office. Out-of-town visitors. Britney's release from rehab.
So I'm playing catchup with this post. These buddies of ours escaped to San Diego a few weeks ago for a break from the misery of the northeastern winter.
One of our first stops along the Sandy Eggo tourist trail was Black's Beach, where clothing is always optional.
Next, we headed to Cabrillo National Monument on the tip of the Point Loma peninsula, which overlooks Coronado, San Diego Bay and Downtown. Visibility from the monument is sometimes restricted by a marine layer that rolls in from the ocean, but we lucked out with the weather and had a clear view of Mexico to the south and snow-capped mountains near Los Angeles to the north.

This old lighthouse is one of the main sights at the park.
But my favorite spot is this loo with a view.
Here's what you see when standing at the urinal inside the bathroom.
We ended our tour with a stop at the tidepools at the base of the monument.
The boys searched for trapped sea critters.
Rex was a bad Californian. He left his flip flops at home and had to cling to the dry ledge while we frolicked in the surf.
