Meanwhile we've been doing a bit of shopping and exploring while the sun shines. Right now, however, it is pouring and the local road/town crews are out with pumps at the ready. We're snug inside Beluga, Christmas lights glowing and pumpkin pie baking.
We've had a lovely pre-Christmas lunch on Coronado Island, walked the beach and watched some military maneuvers there, attended the little Pacific Beach Farmer's Market (and scored FOUR Kouign Amanns!!!!), were entertained by a very talented flyboarder enjoying his sport on the Bay during our Happy Hour, watched the water fowl on the bay behind us and generally enjoyed ourselves in small, quiet ways.

when he's not on duty, the little bugger methodically denudes my potted marigolds!
