The Lockdown Continues - What we’re doing

This year the second week of January is proof San Diego is Americas Finest City!  With clear skies and temps in the mid-70s – low-80s we just had to ignore the Stay-at-Home orders!

The morning found us unloading our bikes at Liberty Station for a ride to the Coronado Ferry Terminal.

We were the only two on the deck of the Convention Center Ferry to the Coronado Ferry Landing.  


The Big Bay is sparkling in the sunshine.  And the views of Downtown are outstanding.

We usually stop at the Hotel del Coronado.  And continue the ride along the ocean.

Typically we ride north from The Del among the tree shaded lanes and fancy homes.  However, we’ve timed a –1.4 tide perfectly and decide to ride south to see if the tide is low enough to see any of the SS Monte Carlo shipwreck.  I last saw the Monte Carlo with a –2.1 tide in 2016, that blog can be viewed HERE.


A bountiful clear day but no sign of the Monte Carlo.

About once a week we ride our bikes to the Pacific Beach Library to pick up or return books.  We’ll be doing this ride again tomorrow as Fran and I have 3 books ready now, 2 in transit and 21 holds that have yet to be fulfilled.  The ride around Mission Bay is always a pleasure.


The surf on the ocean remains high.  Waves have damage the OB Pier and breached the PB Boardwalk.

We’re still doing jigsaw puzzles, the last one from a Gal-Pal of Fran was a Liberty Wooden Puzzle.  What fun!  Intricate whimsical pieces laser cut into 1/4” maple plywood.


For Christmas daughter K gave us 3 months of puzzle rentals from Completing The Puzzle.

I returned our 2nd puzzle today and should receive another next week.  I expect 3 months will not be enough for 'back to normal' returns, but what a great idea!  

This stay-at-home is so boring I’ve run out of weeds to pull in the garden!  I’m thinking it’s time for another violation!

Stay Safe!
