Trip with my mom, sister and brother in law to San Diego/Southern California. It was my mom and brother in laws first trip to California, and was the first time my sister had been in 15+ years. After landing in San Diego, we headed to Richard Walkers Pancake House which provided one delicious breakfast. Then it was off to show off the San Diego area, including the Coronado Bridge and the USS Midway tour. By then it was time to head up the coast with a stop in Torrey Pines State Park before going to Newport Beach for whale watching. Spent the next day at the Hilton Resort in Mission Beach before heading home. Great quick trip!
