San Diego and Southern California Video Montage

San Diego is a sparkling gem in Southern California. The video montage show many of the treasures in the the city and along the coast.

Balboa Park

We caught a performance on the glorious Speckels Organ, the world’s largest outdoor organ.

Balboa Park has many things to see and do.  We enjoyed the Botanical Building with its fabulous collection of California plants.

Coronado Beach

When we asked a park employee for dinner recommendations, she suggested a few restaurants on Coronado Island.

I had perhaps the best hamburger ever at the Tavern Bar & Grill.

RV parking in the San Diego area is expensive and Coronado Island is not build for RV parking.

However, we noticed parking along the beach with no obvious restrictions.

Awesome!

Since the beach faces South, we enjoyed a fabulous sunset and a fabulous sunrise.  I took my camera and tripod down to the beach and caught many great shots featured in the video.

Coronado California

Old Town San Diego State Park

Old Town is a fun and festive collection of historical buildings and restaurants and shops celebrating the Mexican heritage of San Diego.

The Wells Fargo building had a great display of the history of the the Wells Fargo Bank.  The company brought transportation, mail services, and banking services to the somewhat wild west. It is an amazing story of helping to build America.

The iconic Wells Fargo stagecoach on the display is a wonder of design and construction.

Mormon Battalion Historic Site

The Mormon Battalion Historic Site was a delightful surprise.  We knew very little about the Mormon role in building San Diego.  The excellent presentation that involved interaction between the audience, young women presenters, and multimedia displays took you along on the arduous and hazardous trek of the Mormon Battalion towards San Diego.

The people in San Diego were told a group crazed religious zealots were coming to fight them.

Instead there was music and dancing and the Mormons helped building San Diego.

After deserts, dangerous rocks, rivers, and rattlesnakes, there is a paradise of beaches and partying!

Oceanside Harbour

We paid for overnight parking at the splendid Oceanside Harbour.

See the beautiful waterfront images in the video.

Mission San Luis Rey de Franca

The Catholic Mission was established in 1798.

Laguna Beach

Next we stopped for breakfast at the Madison Square & Garden Cafe were I had the best breakfast pizza ever!

Crystal Cove State Park

Now this is what the California coast is all about!

Redondo Bay

We stopped to visit friends on their boat in Redondo Bay. That is California living at it finest!

More coming soon!

By the way, all of the photos are available for licensing through me and eventually on stock photo agencies.
