2016 Jan 17 – Day 7 California and Beyond

Day 7 – January 17 – Carlsbad, CA – Day 2

We slept in, lingered over our coffee after breakfast, and played/read stuff on our laptops for awhile.  I checked the visa charges (ouch!  That Cdn/US dollar exchange is a killer right now!) and paid some bills.  Then we got energetic and went for a walk around the resort to see what was what.IMG_4444

Home – Unit 2115 is the door on the right inside the alcove.

The Park Hyatt Hotel sits up on the hillside.

 

 

We met another walker on the way up and she told us about a State Park marsh down by the golf course.  A staff member told us there are over 160 species of birds that winter here so we will take a walk all the way down and check it out someday.

I also overheard one of the check-in gals telling some people about some lava caves you can walk through that are not too far from here.  I will look into that as well.  We have been to Sea World in San Diego which is only about 40 miles south of us but I would like to go to the world famous San Diego Zoo.  See, we have lots of things to do!  But not today.

Besides, I have plans for this evening.
