In February our friends, Pat and Harry from Calgary, came to visit San Diego for two weeks and we spent time exploring all the wonderful sightseeing places around San Diego with them. We visited the Midway Museum, La Jolla, the Air and Space Museum at Balboa Park, Old Town, the Gaslamp district and an unforgetable breakfast at the Coronado Hotel. We drove to Laguna Beach for the day visiting the many Galleries, including the famous Wyland Gallery, and enjoyed a great lunch looking out over the ocean.
The highlight for me was going to Disneyland for the first time, and celebrating the 60th anniversary of Disney. Security was searching for weapons coming into the Park and poor Harry got busted for carrying his pocket knife on him. We went on several rides, the Ironman Exhibition and the Riverboat that was docked until further notice. We loved the parade of all the Disney characters as they marched through the Park waving and singing to all the crowds of tourists. Lastly we went to the Disneyland Adventure Park and then hurried to meet Jackie, Pat and Harry’ daughter, who works for Disney as an animator drawer, for dinner outside the Park. All in all we had a wonderful time sightseeing, eating, drinking and laughing together for two weeks. Click on thumbnail to view images
