Coronado, California ~ reunion with friends

My page from the Glorietta Bay Inn (done over a few days) (by Jane LaFazio)

Husband, Don and I traveled 40 minutes south of our home, to Coronado, for a reunion with a group we'd traveled to Cuba with in January 2018.

My page in progress
  (We got chocolate chip cookies and milk delivered to our room every evening.)

Notice the image of the Blood Moon (January 20) in my sketchbook, above.
This is what we actually saw. Artistic License!

Breakfast on the patio of the hotel. This resident seagull was an experienced thief!
That's why I drew him in a WANTED poster on my sketchbook page.

Glorietta Bay Inn, Coronado, California
We all stayed at Glorietta Bay Inn. It was John D. Spreckels mansion and he lived there from 1907 to 1926. He also owned, at one time, the Hotel Del Coronado, right across the street.

Coronado is right next to San Diego, and a really charming island and place to stay.

We also took the Coronado Walking Tour, with a guide named Gerri, and it was excellent.

Our gang on the steps of the hotel. We all traveled to Cuba together in January 2018.

  1. I love walking tours. Have been on many by visiting small town book stores or the historical society and getting a book or brochure on all the important sites to see.


Thanks so much for visiting!
