Beautiful San Diego, plus fireworks

We arrived in San Diego yesterday morning. After losing exactly one blackberry (not mine) and enduring an unbelievably long wait for a rental car, we were on our way.

First stop: La Jolla Cove. We wanted to see the beach. What we got were seals. Lots of seals.

Then, last night, we went to the Padres game. Here's a little video of the fireworks from the post-game.

After what was close to a 24-hour day, we went to sleep at our very posh hotel. This morning, we woke up and went to Coronado.

First the beach:

Then we chased some ducks through downtown:

Then we went out to Balboa Park and relaxed at the Koi pond by the Botanical Garden:

Tomorrow we head out to the desert.

For a minute I thought you had stayed for all 18 innings, but that was last night. Were they wearing the camo uniforms on Saturday, too? (I only know all of this because the game was on at the restaurant we were at for dinner and since it was the Reds I paid attention.)
Sounds like you're having a lovely time. Hope you enjoy the desert.
