California was nice, temperatures in the mid 60s, sunny and dry. My rental car was a lot nicer than the last time as well! I arrived in San Diego around noon, got shuttled to the rental car place and after a few confusing moments, I was able to get in my Toyota Avalon Touring (with black leather seats) and be on my way. I plugged in my destination on my phone to figure out how to get to the office from the rental car place. Once plotted, I kept reviewing the directions the whole way to...the hotel. I past right by my work. No problem, really, my phone doesn't talk to me like the other GPS systems do...so I pass the road that takes me to the office and went to the hotel, checked in, went to the room to drop off one of my bags and went into work.

|Same view...but the sunset on the ocean!|
I thought I'd be there for an hour or two, but stayed longer than that. It was only my second time in this office, but the people I work with are all here, so they were ready for me when I got there! It was actually refreshing to be able to work in an office after being home based for 2 years.

|Beautiful flowers and shrubs in bloom, with a perfect backdrop of the ocean|
|Uhhh...this is the ocean, dude.|
|Too bad I cropped out the ocean to the left, but this is a cool photo anyway.|
The trip was great, but tiring. The only time I could to do my art was at the airport, so hopefully my upcoming trips will yield more productivity...but without sacrificing the experience of the trip!
