after our morning in la jolla, we headed over to coronado island for a long walk on the beach. y'all, the sand there sparkles. i was obsessed. as in, i turned into a three year old little girl, and (a) couldn't stop looking at it, and (b) wouldn't stop talking about it. magical sand! it was like pixie dust. i thought peter pan might show up at any moment.
the afternoon wrapped up with ice cream and a stroll through the hotel del coronado. AKA the del.
fun fact: the hotel del opened in 1888. that's 100 years before i was born, folks. at that time, it was also the largest resort hotel in the world. you've now had your history lesson for the day. you're welcome.
