Road Trip: Day 8

Since our trip to the beach got rained out yesterday, we checked out of our hotel and headed towards Coronado, but this time we went to the north side.  Even though that’s actually the side of the island that faces the bay rather than the ocean, there’s a boardwalk with a bunch of little shops.  After having lunch at an awesome little pizza place, we headed back to the other side of the island near the Hotel Del Coronado.  Calvin had a blast running around on the beach and into the waves.

Then we officially turned around in the general direction of home, taking I-8 east towards Phoenix.  All that playing at the beach must've worn Calvin out (or he was still catching up from Disneyland) because he checked out before we even left San Diego.  He slept for 3 hours in the car!  Then just a couple of hours later, we were in Phoenix and back to the Mountain time zone and sub-$4 gas (yay!).

Tomorrow my parents and Uncle Ryan will be coming up from Tucson to join us!
