Where I stayed

Well, we have arrived in San Diego, California and checked into the Sheraton Hotel at the Marina, awaiting the beginning of our cruise on Friday.

Eventually, last night we boarded the Amtrak train at 9:30 at night in a desolate spot, crawled into our berth and fell to sleep at 10:30, pulling into the Los Angeles station early at 7:20 a.m. this morning. The best part was meeting up with a nephew who battled LA's morning rush hour traffic for a visit and a hug!

Then at 9:45 yet another train to San Diego. Sunshine and spring flowers and a ride along the Pacific Coast Highway and arrived about 12:30. Downside is the hotel is on an island and we are a captive audience in relation to obtaining food...$$$...Tomorrow we will make our way to the zoo.

Hopefully, we will also receive the overnight package from Amazon containing the camera battery charger and batteries replacing the ones David left in the outlet on the train we debarked from at the Grand Canyon. Thinking he would just replace it at a camera store in San Diego, he has learned they don't make them anymore. So...someone needs to be more careful when charging his batteries in the future...and Carolyn ordered two and is putting one away for safekeeping :-)

I hope I don't confuse may get a double entry for the Grand Canyon entry. I got an iPad mini for my birthday and am trying to use the TravelPod app on the iPad instead of the full blown website. I think it may be duplicating efforts. So, please bear with me and I apologize in advance or afterwards whichever the case may be!

We envy you guys. Sounds like a great trip so far. Our snow is pretty well gone except for where it was piled. House is all OK.

Hope you continue to have fun. What a bummer Dave! Why does something like that always have to happen. Guess that is part of what makes every trip memorable. Glad you got away before the snow could stop you. Wish we were there...
