I spent the afternoon in Del Mar, at the racetrack. A bit dissapointed about the gloomy weather which resulted in the pictures not coming out as I'd hoped.
Uploading in just a few...

Del Mar Racetrack

Del Mar is San Diego's premier Horce Racing destination. Without going too much into its history, here's a link for those who are interested about the track's early beginnings, the decades that followed and the present day http://www.delmarscene.com/press/del...ackhistory.htm

The easiest way to get to Del Mar from downtown SD is by taking the train at Santa Fe Depot. I took the Coaster because it's 50% cheaper than Amtrak. A round trip ticket to Solana Beach costs $12. It takes roughly 40 minutes to get there.

Train Station at Solana Beach is pretty cool. Once I got off the train, I had to walk on the upper level platform (alternatively people can use the elevator), crossed the overpass bridge and got on the double-decker bus, right around the corner. It's free of charge.

Bus ride to the track lasts about 7 minutes. The facility itself is pretty large.

Not so much although I do like Rodeo and I've been to a Rodeo event in Washington State a few years back. I just wanted to update the thread with some fresh photos

I really love San Diego! I am trying to go back to school there and eventually move back since I still have family and friends and my ex girlfriend there. :P

But I really do miss going to PB bar hopping.

Aztec Parade took place today in the early morning hours and lasted for about 90 minutes or so. The parade circled around Broadway, Beech st., 6th Ave and all around the streets in-between.
It was an incredible display of sound, dance and costumes. I was able to take a shot through my bedroom window, actually one of several shots but this was the only one that came out good

Great pictures! I was in San Diego for the first and only time last year for a long weekend and loved it. I would probably live there if I wanted to move to somewhere in California.

A lot of these places are familiar to me. I'm looking forward to seeing places that I never saw in person.

I was there in 2001, it's really a great city. But I didn't have such a good camera then.
