Sarah has a friend who lives on the island in apartment right in front of the marina. If you look at the picture below you can see all the boats, and their apartment is right behind that. Anyway, Sarah's friend is out of town, so we were invited to use it. It worked out great!
The heart and soul of the island is the Hotel Del Coronado, affectionately known among the locals as the Hotel Del. It is a magnificent hotel that was built in 1888 and has hosted guests such as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and numerous presidents.
The Hotel Del was just a couple hundred yards away from the apartment, so we spent time wondering through the hotel. And since the hotel is right on the beach, we had a great time talking and walking along the beach. And let me tell you, the sand on the beach was so fine and soft, it was like walking through flour.
We also enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Coronado Brewing Company. I had the Baja Burger with guacamole and peppers, and Sarah had the Coconut Encrusted Mahi Mahi. Truly delicious!
Sarah and I really enjoyed our time away together. I think both of us forgot what life was like with just the two of us, so it was great to spent time together to reconnect and talk. It was great, and we hope to do it again as soon as the next opportunity presents itself. Even though we enjoyed the weekend together, both of us were more than eager to get home and be with Phoebe. :)
