I arrived in San Diego this morning for the SkillsUSA California State Conference. I had to get up at 3:00 A.M. to get kids to the airport to make the flight. Long story, lots of oops, but we made it. All 9 of us. The hotel grounds are nothing short of beautiful. It is ugly stormy at home, but here it is beautiful. Sunny skies, balmy, just wonderful. The hotel obviously spends a lot of money on landscaping. Lots of plants everywhere. This is a close up of a leaf. A pretty big leaf, probably 12 or 15 inches across. I thought it would look nice, so here it is.
