Del Mar

Del Mar and horse racing...what's not to love?

This one did win for me...

Miso and Mika

Mika couldn't decide whether to chew on the box or take a nap in it.

Resting after lots of chasing and playing...

Hotel Rooms

Frequent travelers know how and what to ask when booking their hotel rooms. Upper floor rooms and away from the elevators are first things to request...if you want a quieter hotel room.

Did you know the quietest part of the floor is midway along a hallway. It's away from the ice and vending machines and laundry facilities. And if you do not want outside noise...stay away from rooms with a view of the pool.

You can always ask for a room on the concierge level. If the hotel is not full, chances are you will get a room there.

Happy Traveling...and sleeping...

Treasure Island buildings

Does this building look familiar to Indiana Jones film fans?

The Treasure Island Administrative building was the Berlin Airport in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Other buildings on the island have appeared in countless movies and television shows.

Treasure Island, San Francisco

Treasure Island's Flea Market is not your average flea market. Held on Treasure Island, connected by a small isthmus to Yerba Buena Island. Constructed in 1936 and 1937 from fill dredged from the bay for the Golden Gate International Exposition, the island is named after the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. He lived in San Francisco for a couple of years.

Color everywhere...

I was a little concerned for the poor I bought some stuff.

More history later...think flying, movies, and the Navy.
