New 52 | Week 34: Coronado Sun Deck Dinner


Eating a hot dog on a summer evening on the Sun Deck of the Hotel Del Coronado has been on our Summer To-Do List for two summers now.  We finally got the chance to go last Wednesday.  We were both working from home due to the jacuzzi guy coming over to fix our jacuzzi, so we were able to leave for Coronado around 5:30PM and enjoy the summer scenery at the beach. 

Crossing the Coronado Bridge is always so scenic.  I love looking back at San Diego, especially in the golden light of late afternoon.



Arriving at the Hotel Del Coronado, I saw the opportunity to take this quintessential San Diego photo.  So cool!


The Hotel Del in all its glory.


Lately we’ve been having some very good parking karma.  We found this space on the street right at the hotel!  This is unheard of during summer/tourist season!


Walking towards the beach & sun desk of the hotel.  This view never gets old.




We found a table overlooking the beach and ocean.


The Sun Deck Bar. 



Todd walked around the took some photos of the pool.

Our quest was to eat a hot dog on the Sun Deck, ever since we moved here!  But alas, their summer menu is Mexican-inspired food and the hot dog was not in the mix.  Maybe we’ll have to come back in the fall for the hot dog!  Instead, we had chips, salsa, guacamole, grilled tilapia with corn fritters, and chorizo taquitos.


More views of the beach.  I love this time of day for photos.



After dinner, it was dusk.  The hotel takes on a new light, but still so beautiful as the sun sets.


We could not leave without a visit to our favorite creamery in San Diego, Moo Time Creamery.



Driving back to San Diego across the bridge, with a night view of San Diego. 


This long-awaited first dinner on the Sun Deck of the Hotel Del Coronado did not disappoint at all!  It was a fantastic experience, one that I want to repeat again.  Next time with a Hotel Del hot dog.  :D


About This Project

New52 is a project started by Peppermint and I to encourage each other and others around us to try something new every week in 2011. The "new" each week doesn't have to be something big. It could be something as simple as ordering a new dish instead of old standbys at your favorite restaurant. It's simply opening your heart up to NEW possibilities.
Don't worry if you're late getting started on joining in. It's totally OK if you miss a week here or there. We encourage everyone to keep an open mind about trying something new. This is a life project, and a photography/blog and even scrap challenge if you wish. If you participate this week, please leave a link to your blog post in the link list below.
