2014/06/20 A long weekend in San Diego with Arturo
π 2014-06-20 00:00 in Trips
Arturo invited me to join a few of his friends to go diving in San Diego, and we took some extra time to visit San Diego a bit, which I had started some years back, but didn't get to finish.

Arturo and I took an early flight on friday morning to enjoy most of the day in San Diego:

After landing we went to pick up Arturo's compact car :)


From the airport, we went directly to Cabrillo national monument to see the beach/tide pools before the tide rose too much. It was a nice hike by the coast:










Arturo was not much of a photo model, so I had to find other people :)



After the coast, we went to see the Cabrillo monument and went to get some picturs from San Diego and the military base:






how about that, it was a perfect fit :)

On the way back down, we went to check out the cemetary on the side of road back down:



From there, we went to the science museum in Balboa Park and went to see a couple of Imax movies:



Next, we went to the museum of man, which closed later and wasn't bad:







The next day, we met with Bill, Regis and Kyoko for diving, which is on its own page.

After diving on our second day, we had a bit of extra time in the afternoon, so we went back to Balboa Park to see the botanical and Japanese gardens:












Next, we went to San Diego Old Town, starting with Whaley House and then shops in old town:



















The next day, Arturo and I started the day by going to the Midway Aircraft Carrier, which allowed me to see more of the top of the carrier and the command center which I hadn't been able to see last time when I concentrated on the bottom decks.

After that, we went back to Balboa Park and went to the natural history museum:





After it closed at 17:00, we had enough time to enjoy some yummy deserts before heading for the airport to fly home:
