Okay, I know you have been waiting for an update on our San Diego trip. Obviously, nothing could be better while you sit in your office than to see what I am doing during a perfect 73 degree day in Southern California. We spent Tuesday getting slapped around by the waves at Mission Beach. I attempted surfing for the first time, and though the pictures don't do it justice, I did get up somewhat consistently. Torrie and I both got a little too much sun that afternoon.
Torrie and I had dinner Tuesday night in downtown San Diego at a place called Bertrand at Mr. A's . This restaurant is 12 stories above the city and has the best view of the San Diego skyline. To prove it, the pictures below are taken from our table. It is so close to the airport that planes were landing just over my shoulder the entire evening. If you are ever in San Diego, this is a must.
Just in case you were wondering, the San Diego Zoo lives up to all of the hype. We spent Wednesday roaming around this huge complex which sits right in the middle of the Balboa Park. You really get the sense that the Zoo cares for the animals and that they are not just trying to put on a 3-ring show. They are doing great work at getting animals off of the endangered species list. Oh yeah, we also got to see a couple of polar bears fight. That was pretty cool.
We have to get on a plane tomorrow and fly back to Tulsa, OK. I saw on the news this morning that it is 101 degrees there. Enough said.
