And on to the Hotel del Coronado.


And then had some beers in the afternoon sun and chatted about recent travels including his recent whirlwind first-class, four continent, around the world adventure.


We then went for a bit of walk around the very grand old hotel. Construction of the 399 room hotel first began in 1887 and then opened for business in February 1888. With all the wooden construction, a freshwater pipeline was run under San Diego Bay to deal with fire hazards, with water tanks and sprinklers also installed.


In the magnificant lobby. All U.S. Presidents since President Eisenhower have stayed at the hotel (with the exception so far of Donald Trump).
