I have to quit watching the news but alas I can’t there is so much happening in San Diego from Comic Con to Sandcastle contests to a mystery in Coronado. It’s been hot this weekend so Hubby and I have been doing something that has to be done unpacking boxes from moving back to Crest. So while sorting through the boxes the T.V has been on and boy San Diego is a happening city.
The news has been flooded with comic con 2012 at the convention center. Can you believe over 125,00 people are coming to a comic book convention? This event has morphed into a pop phenomenon . People dress up like characters from comic books and movies . This event is so interesting because of all the costumes people wear and it’s a giant happy event of peaceful people who love comics and movies. For the first time Steven Spielberg the famous director showed up. He is the man who made E.T and Indian Jones movies. Comic con started in San Diego and has grown to be a international event. Fans mingle with actors and directors at times and it is a total people watching event!
Sandcastles in Imperial Beach
A summer mystery
|Hotel del Coronado|
| Drive over the bridge to the island of Coronado.|
When I was a kid you had to take the ferry to get there.
The final sad event is the mystery of Coronado . The spreckles mansion has a mystery. Is it murder or something else? Coronado is a beautiful beach town that has the world famous Coronado hotel .
The Spreckels mansion is a famous
landmark in Coronado known for being built by the of the owner of the Coronado hotel.
The last thing we have in San Diego county is a wildfire way at the end of San Diego County . It’s not near homes and burning to the desert. It’s burned about 3,000 acres. This ends my report of what's happening in my neck of the woods.
My only personal news today is Hubby ,Maulie and I have to go on a hike and get some more dodder for the gals at rug hooking on Tuesday . I haven't told him yet and since I don't want to have heat stroke I will wait til it cools down towards evening.Lol !
