After breakfast at our hotel, we attended a church service in Rancho Bernardo. Then we decided to drive downtown and take the bridge over to Coronado Island. We wanted to visit the famous Hotel Del Coronado. Built in 1888, the Hotel Del is a National Historical Landmark. Over the years, it’s been visited by many celebrities and US Presidents. In its time, it was considered to be a technological marvel. It was one of the largest buildings in its day to be electrically lit. Its power plant provided electricity to the entire town of Coronado when it opened.

After leaving the Hotel Del, we took a stroll down Orange Ave on Coronado Island and did some window shopping.

Later, we crossed back over the bridge to downtown San Diego and we had a late lunch at Seaport Village. It’s a waterfront area of hotels, shops, walking and biking paths, and parks.

Finally, we headed back to our hotel, but we stopped at the Tesla supercharger station along the way to prepare for tomorrow’s journey to Sedona, Arizona. While we were refueling, we saw two sets of San Diego “Chargers” fans stop at the Tesla Super ”charger” station in their Model S cars. Apparently, the Chargers had a (come from behind) victory!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s adventure.
