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".
Lobby view (blurry, my fault) showing the contrast between the dark woodwork of the ceiling and balcony with the elegant airy crystal chandelier.
My Joe, his bro Craig, and girlfriend Dolores admiring the many turrets and towers of the Hotel Del.
Hunky Joe taking a closer look at an intricately detailed sand castle city built on the beach by a skilled someone.
