The vintage couple headed out west again this fall to escape the tundra - but our plans were significantly different from previous years when we just talked about moving to California some day.  We decided that this would be the year for a long term rental in San Diego - the first step of our big move.   Coronado was our first choice. If we couldn't find anything suitable we planned to move on up the coast until we found something we liked. On our first day of looking, we walked in to this corner apartment in Coronado that is directly on San Diego Bay with spectacular views of downtown San Diego and the Coronado Bridge.  We rented it immediately. It's actually the only place we looked at.  It was unfurnished and we had no furniture -  now that required some fast action because we needed to move in two weeks. 
Well I'm happy to report that we made the move with the necessary furniture (like a bed) all arriving on the day we moved in.  So far we are delighted.  Here are a few of the cool boats (or ships)  that pass by on a daily basis - boat watching has become my favorite new pastime.
