        Okay, so this sounded like a pretty coll place to stay and it is. Very different from anything I've stayed in before and a good find by the wife. Its a very popular place so we had to bokk nearly a year ahead.

        It;s nice walking out to the end of the Pier, which is open to the public until 8pm, and also great hearing the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Lovely views out over the ocean and watched a nice sunset from the outside area.

        The hotel we are staying in does not have a gym of its own, but they are right beside an MMA gym , that they have an agreement with, so that anyone staying there has ...

        Next was the San Diego Museum of Art, This was a typical big city art gallery, and it ahd a good smattering of art from the various masters. More of the older, realistic, and religious type paintings than we generally like, but there was one great section devoted to the art of Coney Island. Some were ...

Meaning I will never again feel manipulated by others and I will be able to hold to the conviction of my imperfect & human decisions regardless of where they lead me. I am done being acted upon and finally ready to take ownership for when I act for myself.

When we finally made it to the potato chip rock we were presented with the question of how we were going to get to it, as the rock closest to it was a decent jump away, and if you were to fall you would definitely get hurt, if not break something. So our next best option was to climb it. We successfully managed to get up there and I ...
