Allen Road Walk on New Years Eve

31 Dec

Foggy weather opened to a sunny afternoon full of local sightseeing. We went out for a walk down the Allen Road Trail, named after the old Allen Dairy, located at Allen Rd. and Ft. Stockton Dr. Today was wet and lots of trees down but still a quick down and back up makes for a nice, brisk walk. Look for two swings, old military foundations and the cement remains from World War II gunnery, 1943. Next time we need to leave time for a “Famous” Apple Pancake at Ricky’s…Yum! Enjoy

Saturday Evening Walk At Presidio Park

11 Dec

We took the bogs on a walk to the park last Saturday. They love the sights and sounds of the serene trails. This time we took the center paved walkway along the backside of the Serra Museum which takes you along the back around to the front for a great sunset view. As you can see from the foto some professional fotogs were also enjoying the sunset. Have a great rest of your weekend. Enjoy!

Saturday Drive: Coronado, Gaslamp, Pioneer Park, Pringle Street (Photos)

5 Nov

Here’s a bunch of fotos I snapped today. After the rain it was nice to get out and experience a crisp fall day.

I made the mistake of driving into Mission Valley, inspired to breeze through Ikea, not realizing a huge event was underway. So plan B, we headed out to Coronado and Gaslamp for a drive.

Had to pull over and chow on some tasty tacos at Las Quatro Milpas before heading to Coronado. Did you know they are on Facebook? I reviewd LQM on Yelp too, be sure to read the post with all the links here.

We ended the day of errands by walking the dogs through Pioneer Park to Pringle Street. Also one of my favorite modern homes is listed below. From time to time I come across homes I have admired my whole life living here in Mission Hills, this house is one of them. Love the views from that area in back of the park. There was a wedding and I couldn’t resist sharing a snaps or two, so cute! Forgot my camera again so forgive my Blackberry quality. Enjoy
