We spent 6 days in San Diego visiting friends who live there. It is a long drive to San Diego from Oakland. Long and boring. We left home at 9:00 and arrived there at 5:30. After you leave the Bay Area it is nothing but farmland and 18 wheelers. I took several pictures (remember to click on the pictures to enlarge them, click twice to get them really big) for facebook as we went down I 5. They all look the same. Trucks, cars, grass.
It was our host Richard's birthday, his little nephew's birthday, Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day, and Mother's day all in one weekend. On Saturday there was a huge party, lots and lots of appetizers and a huge buffet of great Mexican food. Oh beer and wine were served also.
Mt. Helix. This is a privately owned park with an amphitheater, great views, and the cross.
We had a wonderful relaxing time with Richard and Luis. We really miss them. When they lived in San Francisco we saw them every week. Now we see them if lucky once a year. Thank goodness for Sykpe. We do see them that way regularly.
Thanks Richard and Luis for the great vacation. We love you.
