Paradise Point

We stayed at the Paradise Point Resort while in San Diego.  It was very nice as resorts go, not that I have stayed in many . . .  wait make that any.  The room was nicely decorated and adequate for our needs and it looked clean.  Not that I'm a neat freak, but when my youngest spilled some water all over the tile floor and I got one of the nice white towels out of the bathroom to mop it up, the towel turned black.  We kept our socks on after that.  And Housekeeping didn't make it to our room until that evening so it didn't get cleaned, not sure they would have done more than sweep it anyway.

Despite my little rant, it was lovely.

Spent some time playing with the camera, taking pictures of the birds and flowers and trees.

Can anyone tell me what this growth is on the side of the palm tree?  Is it flowering?

Wow! Looks gorgeous, even if you did have to keep your socks on. Sorry it wasn't all nice and sunshiny for you.

Awesome. San Diego is my hometown. That is the resort the Gosselins stayed at when they were there.

you photos are very striking!
I'm jealous of your vacation (socks and all). I still have snow where I live.

Oh all that vibrant color and flora and green -- so luscious amidst the grey bleakness that still prevails in Nebraska. Sounds like a good trip (despite the grimy floors!).

I'm so jealous! What great pictures. You could make your own postcards! :-) I shared the airplane pics with my husband as we are going on a family trip to Disney World this spring and our boys will be flying for the first time. I'm thinking we'll just head for the very back of the plane! :-) Also, we have that same Lightning hat--love it!! I'm hoping you all brought some warmth back with you!!
