I went back over to Coronado on Thursday evening with a friend from the local photo club. We started out at the Hotel del Coronado. The sky was quite different from Sunday night, and really nowhere near as interesting. There was, however, a crescent moon setting over the view of the pool.
We went into the lobby to try a few more shots of the Christmas Tree and the other decorations.
From the Hotel Del we headed over to the Il Fornaio Restaurant at the Ferry Landing for a light dinner and some shots of the downtown San Diego skyline across the Bay.
The Bay was really calm, and when we first got there, the sky was quite clear. Later it started to get a little foggy along the shorelines.
The new Hilton sort of stands out by itself, away from the rest of the tall buildings downtown.
The USS Midway Museum (the aircraft carrier in the distance) had it's holiday lights going.
The now infamous Carnival Splendor, which recently lost power off the coast of Mexico and had to be towed back to San Diego while the passengers feasted on Spam and Pop-Tarts, was sitting across the Bay undergoing repairs.
