I took some pictures of Downtown San Diego from Coronado Island. It was about 9pm when I was taking these. It’s always a beautiful view of the City from across the bay. Many tourist come each year to take in this view.
I took this picture during lunch time while I was in Coronado. The area from which I took this picture is called Glorietta Bay. It has some shopping, hotels and restaurants, which attracts many tourist and San Diegans alike. Coronado also known for its Naval history and the Hotel Del Coronado among some beautiful beaches.
The famous Coronado Bridge allows people to drive to and from Coronado and is a landmark of sorts in San Diego. There is also a Ferry that arrives every 30 minutes taking people across the bay from either side. In this view, Seaport Village, another tourist attraction with its many stores and boutiques.
The Convention Center is right next to Seaport Village and host conventions like the San Diego Auto Show and Comic Con. San Diego has much to offer and this is just a small glimpse of what San Diego has to offer.

I drove down to Mission Beach, taking some pictures of the historical Roller Coaster there and ended up in Pacific Beach towards the evening. I was trying to get some Sunset shots. I’ve been to the place before and I had some good memories. So I figure why not. To capture the sunset at this time of year, I had to go down a stair case and make a right along the cliff.
The beach is not sandy at all, in fact there is nothing but rocks of various sizes all over the place. I stumbled around on top of the rocks and slipped several times, hoping nobody was watching me as I tried to get to the spot I had been previously and got some decent shots. Finally, I got to my destination and what you’d know, not a cloud in sight and the sun was just about 5 minutes away from disappearing below the horizon.
I noticed a few bumps and scratches on my leg and some blood on my big toe and figured, well, maybe I should head back to the stair case. On my way back, about half way down, I met a young man sitting on the rocks watching the sunset. We conversed for a little while and he told me that this area used to be a gunnery during World War II. I was wondering about all the concrete and other man-made objects that are scattered all over at that spot. After the war ended, the Government tore the whole thing down, thus so many remnants of the former gunnery.
Well, I made it safely back to the stairs and set up my camera to get at least a couple of shot for the night. Here is the one of the shots I got, a view towards Pacific Beach and the Crystal Pier. It was a pretty nice evening after all. I met some people at the place I was taking the picture and we had a pleasant conversation.
That is another reason I love to go out and take pictures, the scenery, the fresh air and the people who I meet on my outings. Always fascinating and exiting to talk to people and have some fun. Reminds of a time when things were like that, when people still had the time to say hi and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
