Here we are!
So, flight went awesome. Hate the size of the seats. Got to the Best Western Island Palms Hotel and Marina and all is good.
So I got this book: Photo Secrets San Diego, A Photographer’s Guide to kind of prep for this trip. It’s pretty good. It showed me this great location to take a skyline shot of downtown San Diego. We drive up to this place (only 1km away from hotel) and I set up. It feels like I’m in someone’s driveway but it is supposed to be public access. Then the people came home. Awkward! But they were great! Let us in and I got to shoot panos of the skyline off of their balcony.
So awesome! The best views imaginable out their windows and so nice! Great start. Point Loma tomorrow.

BTW our hotel is amongst the palm trees in the middle of the picture.
