I haven’t blogged for several months bad back and a severe case of ongoing sciatica has in many ways restricted my work a fair amount but I have manged to finally come the other side of it and feel a lot better
So im very sorry that I wasn’t available in Bristol the past few weeks for those of you that asked to pay me a visit that asked I should have been at home all this week and next week in Bristol .
However I got the opportunity to go to San Diego & Mexico for a few weeks and as the States is the one place I have never ever been to,I thought it was to good of an offer to turn down .
I was very lucky to stay at the fabulous Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel which is an amazing luxury waterfront hotel right on the marina and next to Seaport Village . I had an amazing view from my room as the hotel is over 40 floors high .
The weather is perfect hitting over 80 degrees every day so far and I have been having a ball .
Ive done all the really naff tourist stuff including the hop on , hop off trolly tours for Coronado Island and Old town SanDiego which I really enjoyed
The drivers are really knowledgable and know loads of interesting local stories which is fun.
Gorgeous view of down town San Diego from my bedroom
I also did the Sea lion Trolly which is is a trolly bus that actually a amphibian boat so we were taken all along the San Diego coast line to Point Loma & the naval base where there are a bunch of crazy noisy California Sea Lions sunbathing on the bait traps and having fun
A wild California Sea Lion Enjoying the sunshine
But one of the highlights was going to La Jolla known as the Jewel in San Diego where they have hundreds of wild California Sea lions just sunbathing and swimming on the beach .
These crazy creatures are not scared of humans and you can get within inches of them for some brilliant photos
I spent a day at Mission Beach where I hired a push bike and rode it all along the boardwalk to Pacific Beach I didn’t fall off but I haven’t rode a bike for years so it waste really fun to do .
