San Diego (part 2)

January 2016.

Coronado. We crossed the bridge and we found the famous Hotel Del Coronado.   Victorian Hotel , built in 1887 with turrets and cupolas. One of America’s largest wooden buildings. Historical Landmark #  844. It is a beach resort.  The “island” ( it is actually a peninsula) is less than 2 miles  across San Diego. On our last visit in SD, we didn’t have time to explore this area.




Close by the hotel, we saw  this dragon tree. Native to Canary Islands. Used in the Marilyn Monroe movie Some like it hot (1958).


We  also took time to go inside in the lobby of the hotel . The light was not very good for photography  but I captured this chandelier that might be as old as the hotel  but I cannot guarantee this.


I were  happy with our visit and we  had enough time on that day  to go to the Cabrillo National Monument. It will be the story of  my next post.

Thanks for  reading.

  1. Très belle vue de ce pont! Et l’hôtel est magnifique et très bien conservé.
    Je suis impressionnée par l’arbre “dragon”.
