California

31 05 2008

So I’ve been spending the week in San Diego, California.  Last week, Kevin Capehart and I flew out here to visit our friends Caleb and Carrie.  We’ve had a tremendous time here!  It’s beautiful out here and the people are great.  We’ve seen all sorts of sites and people, gone down to the Mexico border, was interviewed by Mexican reporters, and almost stepped on a rattlesnake! We got to see the beauty of the Pacific Ocean, and rode up to Los Angeles for a day where I met a cousin for the first time.  We did the stops at the Griffith Observatory, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach.  At Venice Beach there were all sorts of odd folks.  The perfect spot for people watching.

The weather here is blissful, no humidity to speak of, temps from 65-75 degrees, and a nice breeze off the ocean. 

I’ve taken hundreds of pictures, many are on flickr now, but many many are not and will make their way on there when I get home.  The ones online have also been geotagged, so you can get an idea of where I’ve been.

We fly back tonight, our plane leaves at 8:50 pm (PDT) and we fly all night to New York where we connect for our flight back to Richmond.

I’m anxious to get home to see my family, I’ve missed them a lot and I’ve also missed my cats and my house.

It’s been great here though and we were extremely fortunate to have such good friends to be our hosts for the week.
