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.
