I'm San Diego bound

I'm going on vacation, again.  Don't hate me.  :)

I'm going to San Diego this time.  I haven't been to San Diego in 20 years.  I'm sure things have changed.  I know I have.  I know I won't be pushing a stroller this visit.  Yippee.  I'm staying in the Gaslamp Quarter.  I'm excited about this.  Twenty years ago I stayed in the BOQ on Coronado Island.  Trust me, I LOVED it.  I think I'll pass on seeing Shamu this time.  Is Shamu still alive?  But, I think I will go to the zoo again.  I love going for a LONG walk in a pretty place.  I think the zoo will fit that bill.  I'm going to eat good Mexican food.  I'm going to drink a tall tropical drink at Hotel del Coronado.  I'm getting excited just writing all this down.

Now for something I thought I'd never say.  I'm going to meet a fellow blogger.  Joybird, from A Songbird in His Court, said she would come down and meet me.  I'm so excited.  Joybird gave me a Stylish Blogger award.  I was so thrilled by this, as I was very new to blogging.  She gave me such encouragement.  I like her blog very much.  She is a lover of Our Lord and it shows through her words and images.  She's a hiker, and I always wish I could be a hiker.  (I'm really going to have to tell my hiking story one day)  I hope this meeting works out.  I know she has to drive quite a bit to get to me in San Diego.  And, if she bails on this, I TOTALLY understand.

I hope to take pictures and share stories of my visit.  Please stay tuned.  I know I didn't do as well on the pics of my Dayton Beach vacation as I promised, but I'll try harder.

I hope you all have a very happy Fourth of July.  For all my American readers, fly the flag and thank a veteran.  For all my readers from other countries, have a wonderful day and thanks for reading.  :)
