You might recognize it. It was a big part of a movie called: Some Like It Hot, with Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, and Tony Curtis. My wife and I stayed here once for her birthday weekend. I did posts about it.
It is only about 20 miles from our house, so we went over there for brunch.
It is located on Coronado Island… yes, where the Navy SEALS train.
It is a lovely place.
There I am, flanked by Mollie, my younger daughter… yes, the one that just started college, not the one that recently got married… and her boyfriend, Dashawn. Oh, and once again, I had to crop my wife out of a photo, because she doesn’t want to be on the blog.
Did I mention that Dashawn is going into the Navy in a few months? Here he is, looking out at the ocean, and thinking about being way out there somewhere. I told him… as an ex Navy man… that the sea is like a sexy, crazy girlfriend. She will get into your blood, but you should never turn your back on her.
Anyway, have fun with the Super Bowl… Superbowl???… if you are into that ‘organized sports’ thing.
As we started up the Coronado bridge, you can just see the iconic red rooftops of the hotel in the distance.
Those mountains in the distance are in Mexico… South of Tijuana… and still no sign of a wall… HA!
And, ironically, just past the top of a ship raised up in dry dock for repairs, you can see the Navy ships at 32nd Street Naval Base, where I was stationed way back when I was 17.
