Coronado Island

San Diego, Coronado Island

I visited Coronado Island the day before I left the conference in San Diego. After major talks had concluded for the day, my friends Gina, Isaac, and I took an evening trip to Coronado. Coronado is a resort island that is a 15 minute ferry ride from the San Diego Bay.  We went down to the little beach, had a stroll through the shops, and dinner at a barbeque restaurant before heading back to the bay.

The last image I leave you with is of Gina and Isaac.  I really like how this photograph turned out with the exception of the man in the background, but he was in frame because he was leashing the dog.  I've known Gina since I was an undergraduate.  We attend graduate schools on opposite ends of the country so we rarely get to see each other in person.  It was awesome to have the chance to catch up with her in San Diego.  That girl - she just gets me.

  7. Coronado Island looks so lovely! Such a bummer that I won't be making it down to the San Diego area during my west coast road trip next week; I've only heard insanely amazing things about it so it'll have to remain on my "To Visit" list for a while longer.
