We received some great news this week. Vickie and Sammy are coming to visit us in San Diego. They will be here for 10 days. Yippee! We have not seen Vickie since her visit last summer in Alaska. It has been even longer since we visited Sammy at their home in Kentucky. We are really looking forward to spending time with them. We would love to see Ed too, but he has to work. Sammy is our youngest grandson, he is five and will be six in August. I have included a picture of him with Vickie and Ed at the ball game. They picked him to say "Play Ball" at the last game they attended. :-) We sure wish we could have been there to see that.
We have been checking out all the things for Sammy to do in the area. We visited Mission Beach and it looks like the perfect place to start. They have a fabulous beach with a boardwalk, plus Belmont Park with all the rides. This will be one of the first places we take him.
Mission Beach is the center of a continuous stretch of beach known as The Strand, which extends over two miles, beginning at the Mission Bay channel entrance and ending at the north end of Pacific Beach. The Strand is the most popular beach area in the City of San Diego and draws large crowds in summer. We enjoyed our visit there much. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. More later from San Diego.
