For lunch on Thursday we went to our favorite restaurant on the ocean. Beautiful drive, no reservations needed, few, relatively quiet fellow diners, great food, fantastic views and warm sunshine.

After lunch we wandered over to the other side of Point Loma (Cabrillo Monument) and looked down on the city of San Diego, Coronado Island, it's famous hotel and the huge military base Lots going on down there!

Thursday evening's dinner was at Laura and Kevin's socialization mobile. Dinner was yummy, conversation was non-stop and Thor was friendly and lazy. They're keeping him very busy. A tired dog is a good dog, the old adage goes, especially when it's young!
|here's the glamorous ears I told you about|
No people pictures there, sorry. You've seen Laura and Kevin haven't you? But here are a few more of the magnificent Thor, at rest.
|bla bla bla....he was tired of all the boring human talk so he went to bed|
|evidently we were still talking too loudly so he went back in the bedroom for a little peace and quiet|
Friday night new friends dropped by for a sunset Happy Hour. Jeff and Fran Pierce (Ruffinitwithrufus.blogspot.com) live nearby and we've been following each other's blog for awhile so we decided it was time to meet!
Pictures of people! I took pictures of people! Perhaps it was because they don't have a dog to photograph? (thanks for that theory Kevin....)
We had a nice visit, drank a tasty bottle of local wine, enjoyed a beautiful sunset AND a view of the International Space Station as it flew over before the chill suggested we move inside for a bit.
|we're gonna miss these sunsets|
Today, we took care of a few errands and then spent the rest of the afternoon in the sun, reading and enjoying the last few hours of this lovely view.
Oh, and we saw this guy while we were out....it's getting to look a lot like Christmas here in San Diego!
