“Aren’t you a little early for Comic Con?” One, I’m not going to Comic Con this year (I’ll be at home, not being crowded by 140,000 other people), and two, there are reasons to go to San Diego besides that convention. I’m in town for a wedding. Also, you know. Taking a few days in San Diego is a very fine way to celebrate finishing another book.
All of which is to say that you shouldn’t expect too much from me here for a few days. I’ll be busy celebrating nuptials and completing literary tasks, and also sleeping in. A pretty great weekend, in other words. Hope yours is, too.
The boat-park is bigger than the car-park…
Hey John, have fun this weekend!
If you haven’t seen it yet and can make time, the San Diego Maritime Museum is worth a visit.
TJ road trip with me and Fred Heald! What could possibly go wrong?
Does a boat park count as a parking lot?
I was in San Diego last month for Costume Con. The USS Midway is worth seeing _if_ you don’t mind lots of stairs (though some of the exhibit spaces are accessible, and they have video clips of the nonaccessible areas so you don’t have to climb). I’d also recommend the Japanese Friendship Garden.
I never thought about it before but my immediate reaction is Yes, a boat park counts as a parking lot.
That’s a lot nicer than the usual views you give us from your windows. Fancy hotel?
Sunscreen, dude, sunscreen.
If I was in San Diego, I’d go for a nice swim off La Jolla beach and then tacos.
Welcome back to my neck of the woods. I say boat parking counts and is in fact better than a parking lot.
Positive 3 hour time zone change effect – you can sleep in and still be about at a reasonable West Coast hour. Have fun!
Sorry you came in time for June Gloom. You may wee the sun briefly around noon. And it’s cold today.
Welcome to the neighbourhood! As you can tell, I’m a native.
Ah, the hours I’ve spent standing…sitting…sleeping…in lines in and around that building! Fun times, but damned if somebody with better seats doesn’t always post a better view of the hall I’m in on YouTube.
