Solar Eclipse

On Sunday, May 21, 2012, Wayne and Nancy were coming out of a restaurant in La Jolla Shores with our friends Tom and Annette and we were pleasantly surprized to see the partial eclipse of the sun. It was foggy at the beach but made for a beautiful site to behold. 

Pictures were taken at the Bakers' on Mount Soledad.

On Saturday, May 12, Wayne and I took our 1958 Convertible D (Lady Bug) on an excursion around San Diego County. We recently re-acquired this car after trading it for a 1962 twin-grille Roadster in 1991. We eventually sold the Roadster and longed to have another Convertible D. It was not meant to be until Wayne contacted Doug in Carson City recently and he said he was willing to part with the car after all these years. Doug and Linda only put 9,000 miles on it in 21 yrs and the car had been sitting in their garage for the last 8 or 9 yrs not being used. After new tires, an overhaul of the brake system and tune-up, it was ready for the road.

What a sweet running car.  It was a beautiful sunny, southern California day to drive around town with the top down and visiting some of San Diego’s famous tourist sites. Soledad Mt Cross Veteran’s Memorial, Birch Aquarium, the beach at Cardiff by the Sea and the iconic Coronado Bridge. There will be many more trips to come in the future.
