Back Again

I distracted into looking back again at pix from our 10/10 flight to San Diego, and found yet more to share. Here’s the Solana Beach and Del Mar area.

On the large version of the pic you can make out the race track this side of the lagoon. In the closer shot below, click to see the relatively large number of people walking the sandy shallows at the creek mouth.

Near the hang glider/ultralight spot, nude beach, and UCSD there are some fancy buildings perched on sandy bluffs. The glass one looks like some sort of upscale display case. Pretty cool architecture.

At last, over Mount Soledad we turned toward Montgomery Field to prepare for landing. There was just time to snap this hazy view of the skyline as we began our descent. I’ve uploaded a larger image than usual for this blog, so if you click to view the largest version of this it may show some detail. The ship at the left end of the Coronado Bridge is at SIMA where we once taught advanced computer classes for Navy techs.

The tip of massive Lindberg Field shows at the right below the bay, and reminds me of the fun we had landing there with Molly & Dustin. Above that is the tip of Coronado Island leading to the Strand beyond. I once rode my bike along the Mission Valley green belt (foreground) from Mission Gorge to the beach. They’ve been restoring the river front and adding more access, so it’s probably even nicer now than when we lived there. Such a fun flight it was, and the return trip on a slightly different route brought new adventures but no more pix so you’ll just have to imagine. 🙂
