Blogging from San Diego – where every day is beautiful!
I have had a great time in San Diego – it was busy – I am tired – I learned a lot – I have some projects to look into when I get back to work (like I don’t have enough to keep me busy!) – I would love to come back to San Diego to visit.
I got in Saturday evening around 7:00 – unpacked my back and simply walked down to the Sports Grill in the hotel to enjoy a bowl of soup and some sweet potato fries YUM. Sunday I slept in – woke up around 9 and then went for a run along the bay. This is a great city for running and walking. There is a path along the water for running and walking, with shops, multiple marinas and open water views of the bay. There are a couple of parks, including the Embarcadero, which extends out into the bay with a path around the perimeter.
On the running front – I did pretty well and ran 3 out of 4 days that I have been at the conference. On Sunday I run 7 plus miles in a little over 1 hour and 5 minutes – it was a great run. I also ran 4 miles on Monday and 4.5 Tuesday - this morning – I am trying to get this blog written and then I have to pack my bags and get to the conference. I am finishing it up while I sit at the San Diego airport - oh my gosh - it is the smallest international airport, with only 1 runway - and they aren't kidding - it is really small.
Here are a couple of pictures from San Diego.
These are views from my room on the 25th floor of the Hilton.
Beautiful tree along the Embarcadero
The Midway – a World War II museum – with naval sailor and girl statue.

This was my favorite piece - titled – Liberation!
Here are the steps of the convention center - I did climb these stairs one day - this morning I saw someone jumping up the steps - all of them - with both feet together - I don't think I could do that!!!
And last but certainly not least – here is a picture of the Carnival Splendor – the cruise ship that was dead in the water and brought back to port last Thursday with tug boats!
On Monday evening – we went out on a dinner cruise – nope - it wasn't on the Carnival Splendor - sorry no pictures – we left the hotel at 6:15 so it was already dark – and I didn’t bring my camera. It was a nice cruise around the bay – but it did get cut a little short because of the fog rolling in.
Last evening we had a reception on the top floor of the hotel – wonderful food – and drink.
This morning we have a ½ day of conference left – I fly out at 3:00.
good bye 70 . . . hello 40 degree temp's Back to cold weather!
