Last night we watched the sunset at Ocean Beach fishing pier...I’ll take you on a tour of San Diego once I’m home and have my pictures sorted.
There are many daring things we could have done while we were there (things like surfing, riding a hot air balloon, visiting the underwater caves, etc.)…but we chose to take a trolley bus tour of the city. Does that not sound like the safest of adventures to you?
We boarded the Old Town trolley tour at Balboa Park…toured the key sights and learned a little of the history of the city. We spent time in Old Town district and most of the afternoon at Coronado Island. As the day was coming to an end…we caught our trolley back to Balboa Park.
But as you all know…things can change in an instant! As we were exiting the freeway at a good speed, the trolley bus clipped a car which had come to a stop ahead of us. Although no one was seriously injured…we were left with a crippled bus full of tourists, who were all going nowhere anytime soon!
Eventually, the police arrived…and then another trolley bus came to take us to our final destination.
Once again we were reminded that life is fragile…one never knows what each new day may bring. And if you ever think of taking a trolley bus tour…just remember, it could be the adventure of your life!
Today we returned to our favorite spot in the desert...near Palm Springs. Here's the good news...we have definitely found summer! The temperature is supposed to be over 90F for the next few days. I can used to that quite nicely...much as I miss all the good folks back home!
Until next time...
