We stopped off in Carlsbad to see the Flower Fields. It's 50 acres of ranunculus. Don't believe me? Behold:

They're all planted on a hill overlooking the ocean. It's a bit dreamy.
We were slightly bummed that we missed the Red Hat Lady's Day/Style Show by one day but relieved that we missed the craft fair because while we are Women of Adventure and Spare Time we are also Women on Budgets with Very Few Discretionary Funds Who, Alas, Are Highly Susceptible to Hand-crafted Jewelry.
By the time we left the sun was finally breaking through the clouds and we spent the rest of the day down on Coronado, wandering around the restricted-to-guests areas of the Hotel Del Coronado (I love that Heather is willing the ignore signs with me) and eating ice cream cones on the beach. It was a perfect day, despite our lack of sailors at the end of it
