What is a professional photographer doing in paradise without a camera (besides having an amazingly great time)?
I took a 24 hour trip to San Diego to visit my mom-in-law in the hospital. She’s doing well considering. It so happens that it was David’s birthday so we needed to celebrate. We took a room at the Coronado Loews Hotel. I was in heaven already. Tropical, bay and ocean views, blue skies and water. And the room was to die for. I started to create my fantasy retirement in San Diego.
So where are the photos? I was traveling light–only packed a toothbrush, bathing suit and sunscreen. What was I thinking??? Everywhere I looked there was eye-candy. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the grounds and view from my room were filled with potential stock shots. Then there was the beach! A perfect day of shell-filled beaches, waves and a good looking beach dude who is always willing to pose for me.
Alas, the only way to get a photo was with a cell phone. OK, it’s only a snap shot but I made David photograph me after a dip in the Ocean Pacific. I’ve learned my lesson: next time I travel, I will remember to bring a camera!
