Mary and I spent a long weekend on Coronado Island in February.  We stayed at the Marriott which is right on the bay where there is a fun and easy walk to the Ferry Landing.  We made a trip to the Midway Aircraft Carrier museum and to Balboa Park.  With the Hotel del Coronado just down the street there is plenty see and do:

Walking along the boardwalk near the Ferry Landing has an infinite number of subjects and compositions.  Seeing sailboats and other ships was pretty fun for Mary’s father.

    Hi folks, your hotel sunset view looks like a scene from the Greek islands. Never considered shooting cactus in b/w, interesting.
