California Girls...Part 2 - San Diego

We made our way to Coronado Island and it was beautiful, we saw the sunset first and we made a unanamous decision that we both wanted to move... It was so incredibly beautiful!






It is beautiful here, the sun was shining made into the high 70's and it was wonderful. We spent friday afternoon at the navy base, we got the tammy tour. We had the oppurtunity to meet her boss who is a great guy! It's good to know someone is looking out for her. We go to see the offices, look at night vision goggles that cost 12k a piece, and try on the search and resue vests. It was fun! We got to climb around in the helecopters and look at the ship Tammy will spend most of the next year living on.


Friday night we went to a club that was quite an experience...and that's all I have to say about that!


Saturday morning we debated on what to do...Sea World, the Zoo...and then settled on a trolley tour of San Diego, it was AWESOME!! It is a tour that stops at like 10 different places and you have the choice of getting off the trolley or staying on. If you get off you can catch the next trolley, they run in half hour incraments. It was so fun, we got to visit the zoo, old town, see a million museums (though we didn't opt to visit many) the trolley told us all about the history of San Diego and Coronado Island.
This is the view from the bridge going to coronado island. It is so beautiful...I know I have said that a million times but I want to move!!

We stopped at old town and there was about a million missionaries wandering about so we had to check out what that was all about...there was a mormon battalion commemoration. It was so cute all these little kids were running around with guns, it made me laugh!



This elephant is carved out of an olive tree. I thought that was cool!

Well I have lots more pictures but I can't get them off my phone...someday I will post all the pictures of tammy's office and ship and choppers!!!

California Girls...Part 1 - San Francisco

We are having a blast...Hayes and I spent the day driving in from Redding to San Francisco! Our hotel is, how do I put this...it resembles a haunted mansion! There are lots of spooky corridors and no real entrance, you have to have a key or buzz in. Our cars are locked up in a court yard area that is well...creepy! We have been making up ghost stories and having fun!


We took off from the hotel and hoofed it around Fisherman's Wharf, which was fun but when we got to the alcatraz ferry it was sold out, I was so incredibly bummed out! That was the one thing that I really wanted to do!



We had a great lunch at the "Rain Forest Cafe" the restaurant was so awesome! There were creatures everywhere. I think I enjoyed it more than Hailey but it was just awesome!
