      ... springs. Once back at the motorhome, we prepared our snacks and drinks for our next round of tough leisurely activity. Our two hour spa session at the Stargate was scheduled from 5 to 7. We filled up our wine glasses and began our long, hard soak. They had converted an old hot tub into a soaking tub with a running spout that poured in 102 degree spring water. After about an hour, we relaxed in the lounge chairs and had our cheese, meats, crackers, and ...

Being on the flight deck and trying to describe to Brianna how the fighter jets take off from the end of the ship over the sea, was not something she could even fathom.

      We continued to drive a bit further south to Sunset Cliffs where we went for a little stroll along the rugged cliffs and lapped up the stunning ocean views. Very picturesque. That completed our stint in the Point Loma region of SD and tomorrow we move into the Downtown area for another four nights.

Not fair sized ones :( But we still had a fun time, and I sampled some Hawaiian barbecue food, very interesting.
