San Diego-Coronado Beach-Day 4

     We had a very leisurely morning…especially me!  This got us off to a bit later start than originally planned, but as always, it all worked out!  Oh, then we decided to go out for breakfast!  That in itself was worth the delay to the beach!  SURREAL… is what I have to say about our breakfast experience at "Hash House a Go Go" Restaurant just a few blocks away! 
pot roast, eggs, asparagus, provolone...
I’m not sure which was more impressive…the quality of food, the presentation or the quick service!  Everything about dining there was perfect!  The plate was more like a platter and there was enough food for…let’s say, more than one meal!!!!  We savored every bite as we continued to enjoy all the facial expressions as folks’ meals were delivered to their tables!  We returned our leftovers to the kitchen back at the hostel and were on our way to the beach!
     We grabbed a bus to Broadway where we picked up the ferry to Coronado.  From there, we walked to the Hotel del Coronado.

Golden of the
bank entrances!

A sweet friend
This was where the adventure really began…LOL.  This hotel is high end to say the very least!  We were on a mission to find the perfect way in to find a restroom where we could change our clothes for the beach!   Well, of course we did, acting as if we were guests meandering through the “real” guests!!!  It was great fun!  Not only was the hotel and its several private villas gorgeous, but the beach was stupendous!  We basked in the sun for a while, I took a long walk on the beach, we had a snack and then began our journey back!  
There was a wedding here in the morning 

Fun in the sun

Once we figured out how to get to the ferry landing, we admired the beautiful San Diego city lights at dusk while we waited and then enjoyed a pleasant ride to shore.  At that point, we needed to figure out which bus to take to get back to Hillcrest where the hostel is.  We started walking checking out the schedules at all the bus stops…none were looking good…lol.  We DID have an idea where we got dropped off in the morning, so we knew we were headed in the right direction!  We found a bus parked and consulted the driver.  She provided that missing detail we required to reach our destination!  We had a half and half dinner…half chicken curry from the kitchen and half fun leftovers from Whole Foods…we chatted awhile then put our well-worked                                                                legs to bed! 
Such a beautiful beach
