Here's the namesake Coronado Hotel, dominating the beach:
We crossed the Coronado Bridge, with its lovely view of the Marina and downtown San Diego:
The Guard House is itself a beautiful structure:
I got the tourist trolley going past an antique house on the waterfront:
Cycling is very popular, and I love the children's trailers, too:

There were other things in the air, too; this kite...

this one at Creve Coeur Lake
Fighters thundering overhead (Miramar Air Force Base is close by) :
Here's a 360 degree view of the beach from our vantage point:
The grasses and the rocks were themselves so colourful and picturesque!
