A Few Days in Coronado


We left the Coronado Cays Yacht Club on Friday and went north to Glorietta Bay in central Coronado. We spent two days anchored there, visiting the Coronado Yacht Club and the famous Hotel Del Coronado.

The "Del", as it is known locally, is celebrating it's 120th birthday. It was almost torn down in the 1970s, but Ronald Regan, John Wayne and others spoke out for it. The hotel is currently decorated for Christmas and there is an ice skating rink a hundred yards from the Pacific. The weather was quite nice, though chilly.

We spent last night anchored in Shelter Island between the Southwestern and San Diego Yacht Clubs. This morning we moved back to a slip at the San Diego Yacht Club to finish our repair work. It has just started to rain again.

There is a small photo album of Coronado above.
