San Diego Vacation

Joe and I skipped out of town for a few days and flew down to San Diego for some much needed sunshine. A perfect excuse to celebrate my man's birthday. Mainly though we went to spend time with Joe's bro, Craig and his very lovely girlfriend, Dolores.

On a sunny afternoon we drove out by the San Diego Bay to Coronado Beach to explore the beauty of the Hotel Del Coronado, a National Historic Landmark.

The facade of the Hotel Del, a resort distination built in 1888 and at the time it was considered "the talk of the Western world".

The 1959 classic comedy film, "Some Like It Hot" starring Marilyn Monroe was filmed right there at the Del.

Lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado

Lobby view (blurry, my fault) showing the contrast between the dark woodwork of the ceiling and  balcony with the elegant airy crystal chandelier.
