Today was a day for saying goodbyes. A big hug for Jill and Shea, Kathy cried, Jill cried. The apple did not fall far from the tree.
Our next stop after breakfast and a shower is Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery where we honored the soldiers who gave so much. The lines of gravestones were a solemn reminder of how many sacrificed so much so that we can be free to travel the world. https://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/ftrosecrans.asp
Next stop was Cabrillo National Monument honoring one of the first Europeans to step foot in California. The views were amazing!! They had a lighthouse!!!! Kathy is a sucker for lighthouses, so this made her day. We hiked around the monument and looked for whales and watched the boats float by below us. We then drove down to the tidepools where we saw an abundance of sea birds dodging the waves that tried to displace them from the rocks. https://www.nps.gov/cabr/index.htm
Last part of the day was spent walking Old Town San Diego where we had a lovely dinner before coming back to get settled in for the night.
We will catch up with y’all when we get settled In New Zealand.
