Sunny Southern California

Here we all are in sunny San Diego. I left Rochester at 10 this morning amidst the blowing snow and arrived in San Diego to be greeted by sunny skies and temps in the 60's! What a shock to the system, a pleasant shock! Jim and Tucker were at the airport to meet me and carry my heavy suitcase and they whisked me away to this wonderful beach house. Here is the view that awaited me at the airport-palm trees!!!
Now if you are planning a trip to San Diego and are going to be here for more than a day or two, let me recommend this rental beach house. It is right on the beach with the ocean just a delightful sand stroll away. We went for a sunset walk on the beach right after we arrived and walked by several beach volleyball games and then watched the surfers catching the last of the waves in the daylight. This beach house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a large open kitchen, living room, dining room area. The dining table is surrounded on 3 sides by large glass windows and sliding glass doors, which lead to a small deck. There is also a deck area on the ground level where there is a picnic table and a grill. Tucker hopes to go to a local fish market and get some fish for us to cook up on the grill one night for dinner. Sounds good to me.

For dinner tonight we met up with some of Jim's teammates at a restaurant in the Little Italy section of Downtown. As we were finishing up our delicious dinner, Corey called Tucker to say that they were walking around the Little Italy area too and wondered where we were. He stopped into our restaurant so we had a mini family reunion. 
I am really tired tonight with the jet lag and 2 poor night's sleep leading up to this trip. 

I did a good amount of knitting while traveling today. I finished my Sock Club sock and started the second one. I'm pleased with the way the first one looks. I did break 2 of my size 0 needles today, but fortunately I had brought some extras. I now have a reason to visit a San Diego knitting store to get some new spares! 

Race Day tomorrow. Check back for the latest and greatest news from Sunny San Diego.

Hope all is well.
