We recently spent a couple days in San Diego visiting with Terry and LuAnn, who were house and dog sitting there. It was a bit cool and windy but we had fun taking one of the dogs, golden retriever Kaiya, to Fiesta Island's dog beach. Poor Sugar, a sweet older yellow lab, was dealing with some skin allergies and per vet's orders wasn't permitted to romp in the sand and water.
|Kaiya only wanted to chase the ball. She had no interest in playing with other dogs, try as they might,|
|The ring toy never left this one's mouth.|
|Kaiya waiting for Jim to throw the ball, again.|
|The funniest dog was Blueberry, a feisty French bulldog who grabbed the ball tosser from LuAnn and wouldn't let go.|
|What a face!|
|But the award for cuteness went to this Maltese who hid between its owner's legs for protection from all the bigger dogs running around.|
One day we walked around San Diego University, a lovely campus with flowers everywhere.

No trip to San Diego is complete without visiting a couple breweries. A friend of Terry's from high school was also in town, so he met us for dinner at Amplified Aleworks on Pacific Beach. We enjoyed the food and beer, and after dinner took a little stroll along the boardwalk.
|It's always nice to see the ocean again.|
The next evening we opted for Pizza Port, a brewery and restaurant in Ocean Beach that we visited three times when we spent a month in San Diego several years ago. It was as good as we remembered.
Meanwhile, back at Jojoba Hills, we are getting ready to head out in a few days for Prescott, AZ.
|Still quite a few flowers in bloom.|
|It's definitely Spring!|
