Coronado Beach, San Diego

The Coronado Beach at San Diego is really beautiful, though we could not spend too much time there...

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 are apparently lots of people who walk around with metal detectors...they find a lot of cans, some coins, but are perhaps hoping for buried treasure!

There were gulls everywhere; in the air:

On the sand:

House sparrows, too...on the ground:

and in the palm trees lining the Marina...can you see the female with nesting material, so well camouflaged against the tree?

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

which reminded me of

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!
