No rain, no clouds, it’s actually warm here. I can already tell that we will love San Diego and want to come back. We got here late yesterday, then had a nice dinner last night at an Iranian restaurant in the Gaslamp district.
Here I am at the airport.
No, that’s not that blasted unfinished brown sock. It’s on my Blackthorn needles, which I’m not sure I’d try to get on an airplane. I did put this away after we got here though, I’m going to seriously try to finish the brown pair this week.
Today we paid for one of those city trolley tour things. It was a relatively cheap way to get transportation all over the city for a day. We rode all the way around the city tour, but spent most of the day at Balboa Park. You could spend a whole vacation just there. There are great trails, nice gardens, and lots of cool museums. We ended up doing the space and flight museum, which was fun. I met a fellow knitter there.
That’s Amelia Earhart, with her airplane. I didn’t know that they had found her.
What, you didn’t know she was a knitter?? Look closely at her left hand. Click to make it bigger….
A sock knitter, no less. Funny, she’s knitting socks in the same yarn that I am.
We also saw one of the Blackbird Stealth jets at the museum.
It amuses me to no end that the jet is made out of the same stuff as my knitting needles.
Here’s proof that there are sunshine and flowers in southern California.
And some pretty scenery.
Tomorrow we have tickets for a Padres game. They won their home opener today, so hopefully it will be a good game tomorrow. We have the morning to goof off, but haven’t quite decided what we’ll do yet. My conference starts the following day, so we’re going to try to pack in as much tomorrow as we can!
