We spent the afternoon at Coronado Beach, soaking up the sunshine and walking through the beautiful Hotel del Coronado. The hotel and grounds and gardens are beautiful and filled with a rich history. The hotel was build in 1888 and was intended as a resort destination. It has been through it's ups and downs, different owners, etc., but certainly is that "destination" today.
It was a treat to have Mickey take us on the tour and fill in some of the history - including the fact that this is where Dan and Mickey spent their luxurious honeymoon in 1974! Ask her about it :-)
