On Thursday I begin teaching an online American Government course, which goes until July 3. Then my vacation really begins!
Friday we wandered the harbor and the gas lamp district with dinner in Little Italy.
Saturday we spent all day at the San Diego Zoo--number one in the world according to many polls with serious breeding and work with endangered species--with some competitive card playing in the evening. We learned a great new game called Spite and Malice. Take note of the innovative use of the ironing boards for our table!
Sunday morning we did a beach walk on Coronado Island then I headed home on the 6-hour train ride up the coast.
My daughter and I watched When They See Us, the Netflix miniseries about the Central Park 5. It is so powerful and I highly recommend it! I finished season 4 of Schitt$ Creek (after months of watching it on Netflix while I was on the treadmill) and thought it was finished, but when looking for an image, I discovered that season 5 is streaming somewhere. I'll have to see if I can find it. We're also making our way through Jane the Virgin, and I am thoroughly enjoying this spoof on a telenovella.
