Our Last Night on the Road!

Not much to report for yesterday - Bill drove and drove and drove. We left Slidell, Louisiana and stopped for the night in Lake City, FL. I had wanted to stop at Florida Caverns State Park but the tickets for the tour of the caverns are first come, first served and as we neared I called and we [...]

It Was a Creole Soap Opera!

We left our room and headed out - it was not a good night's sleep. The AC went on and off all night and there was lots of noise from cars and voices, coming and going. We headed for the Laura Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana for a tour. First, a stop at King's Truck Stop for a good Southern [...]

Adios Alamo

We woke up and packed up and put our things in the car in the parking garage, then walked to The Alamo. We hadn't made reservations so we would have to wait until later in the day to enter the building, but anyone can tour the grounds any time so we did that. It was much bigger than we thought! [...]

Walking Around San Antonio!

We left San Angelo this morning and headed to San Antonio. Rolling green hills surrounded us most of the trip - farms, pastures, and trees. Very different than southern Texas we saw driving west!

Covering Some Miles!

Happy 90th Birthday, Mom! I'm sorry I'm not with her, but we did celebrate in June with the whole family. Fortunately, brother Carl and Nikki are with her to help her celebrate today with a lobster dinner! Her favorite.

Learning About New Mexico

We left the hotel and stopped at McDonald's for breakfast and were on our way. Less than an hour later we were in Santa Fe, so we found our hotel and then headed to Jiffy Lube to get the oil changed - yes, it has been 5000 miles as of today! The oil change was jiffy, so we went to the Santa Fe [...]

Touring the Town

16 July 2021 | San Diego, CA
Mary Yeomans | 75 degrees, sunny
After a hotel breakfast we caught up on some phone calls and emails and then caught the Old Town Trolley for a 2 hour tour of San Diego. There was a very tall bridge to Coronado and Bill was not too comfortable with that in either direction, but we made it. Coronado is a town off of San Diego.
We got off the trolley in Old Town, which is a state park with reconstructed or renovated buildings that are the same as the original settlement. There were many vendors and shops around the perimeter, so there was some shopping to be done! We toured a few old buildings and read many plaques explaining how things were. Bill found the pizza oven he's been looking for! :-) It occurred to me that this is what elementary students learn here rather than what I, and my kids, learned - all about William Penn, Ben Franklin, and early Philadelphia history.
We stopped at Barra Barra Saloon for lunch and the Mexican food was wonderful. Bill had fajitas and I had a combo platter - way too much food! - and the tamales with pork were amazing. More walking to the trolley and back to the hotel for some rest...
We took Lyft to Embarcadero - a sidewalk that runs along San Diego Bay - and sat on steps to enjoy people and boat watching while sipping some vodka and tonics we brought with us. Fish Market was a 1.5 hr wait so we walked a few blocks to Little Italy and ate at Farmers Table. The food was fantastic! My best meal so far - I had a carbonara dish and Bill had oxtail ravioli. We took a Lyft back to the hotel and called it a night!
