Late Summer Beach Trip…Day 4, Sunday

Up around 6 a.m. and it was still deeply overcast but rain had stopped.  Breakfast at home and then off to church.  We picked up lunch at the #1 ranked restaurant in all of San Diego, Phil’s BBQ.  Yep, a  BBQ joint is #1 in 4040 restaurants. 

Our daughter headed off to LA to pick up our son-in-law from the airport.  He had spent the last eight days with family and on business and now they are heading for Palm Springs for a three day conference and we have our grandson.  Spoil the kid time! 

Took off in the evening for a three mile walk to explore the area.  Many expensive condo’s, apartments, golf courses sitting below UC San Diego.  Sweated through my clothes in the high humidity.

Quiet evening with grandson and day four ends.

Poland/Switzerland, Days 14, 15…Last Two Days

Monday was a eating out day, shopping out day, and a nice meal with Lukes’ family.  Boleslwiec Pottery is in our suitcase and Libby’s collection is growing.

 

Tuesday was a trip to Wilanow Palace gardens. It was the main trip of Poland Switzerland 2012 020tPoland Switzerland 2012 016he day and it was a quiet relaxing place.  The ducks, frogs, and all kinds of wild life were “talking” to us.  The Polish kings used this area as their summer home.

 

We then packed and are working out our early morning trip out of the Warsaw airport.

Poland/Switzerland 2012, Day 13…2nd Sunday in Warsaw

Our final Sunday in Poland busy.  Up early and to church with the kids.  We headed home and had BLT’s and kicked back and watched Babe for the 6th time with Alex.  He really likes that movie a lot. 

After a nap it was off on a long walk of 45 minutes .  The weather has changed dramatically from 88 and clear to 52, cloudy and windy.  Needed a fleece sweater to stay warm.  We then had the second to last birthday dinner for Risa;  tacos, Spanish rice, brownie cake. 

Quiet evening and planning for final shopping for Libby and breakfast out at a café.  Rain?

Poland/Switzerland, Day 11-12…Poland to Warsaw

poland switzerland 2012 029 (2)We loaded up yesterday and had a very smooth and fast trip back from Switzerland to Poland.  When we arrived the sky opened up and we had a great shower.  It is time to wash clothes at Risa’s house and get ready for the last few days of our trip. 

Looks like the weather looks spectacular today…clear with a high of 78.  Getting ready for a walk.  Had to get a picture of Risa and Alex in here somewhere.

We went this afternoon to old town Warsaw and walked the cobblestonepoland switzerland 2012 020 streets and of course we had a Polish apple tart with ice crème.  Great for the waist line!  We did some grocery shopping and I went on a two mile walk to work on the apple pie.  Here we are in the park near downtown enjoying the outdoors.

We had a quiet evening and are about ready for bed.

Poland/Switzerland 2012, Day 7, To Switzerland!

poland switzerland 2012 003I am writing this as I sit in the Warsaw airport. We are waiting for the KLM flight to Amsterdam.  Here is Marisa and Alex waiting and of course, Alex is already eating his sandwich.  Hungry.

This may be the last blog for a few days as our apartment is without Wi-Fi.  Maybe we can find a hot spot somewhere.  I am experiencing a bit of a GI upset but not too bad.  I’m sure you all wanted to know that.

Poland/Switzerland 2012, Church, Packing for Switzerland, Day 6

poland switzerland 2012 015Our first Sunday in Poland and we went to church with the kids.  Very nice and friendly.  We headed after church to a Turkish restaurant and then home to take our nap.  I was 90 degrees again today so I waited to take my walk till nearly 7 pm. 

We packed our suitcases with 60 high and 40 low in Switzerland in mind.   Quiet a difference.  Heading to the Warsaw airport at 11 am and off to Amsterdam, Holland.  We then board another plane for Geneva, Switzerland around 6 pm.  Get our rental car and to our apartment on lake Geneva.  Should be fun.
