We left Saturday open to just walk around downtown and the Gas Lamp District (Historical–although I always kind of chuckle when something is referred to as “historical” in the west because it’s usually not much more than 100 years old, 150 tops, and then one day you go east or to Europe or something) and check out some beaches. Incidentally, it so happened that the San Diego Padres were having a Fanfest day that day, and even though we could not care less about the Padres, or really any AL team, it was free and we thought it would be fun to check out their clubhouse and walk around on the field and stuff.
Then we decided to drive out to this nice little island, Coronado, and hung out on the beach and admired this nice hotel out there, Hotel Del Coronado, pictured in the background.
Also, wanted to share a fun little sewing project that I made for some Christmas gifts. I saw these pillows in Bed Bath and Beyond and loved the design but not the filling and I thought I could probably make them, so I gave it a go and it was pretty easy! I had a hard time finding a good choice for the flower centers and I don’t quite like the shape of my petals as much and I’m not totally sure I correctly installed the zippers but I thought they turned out pretty well!
