Creation date / 2003 / Week 10
A short lay-over in Vegas gives us a chance to gamble (Bryan's first time!). The flight attendants on the SW flight even ran a lottery as soon as we were over Nevada.
Bryan tries his luck. (He wins his quarter back!)
And Leslie hers. (She doesn't.)
Once we arrived at our hotel, we made a quick trip to the drug store to pick up some necessities (Bryan did not purchase the bonnet pictured).
And after a nap (our flight left at 7 a.m.), we took faithful bus #34 to downtown La Jolla.
Leslie was quite taken with the trees in the beach-side park.
More cool trees.
Bryan parks it on some mossy beach rocks.
During spring break, when we'd been together for about a year, we went to San Diego so Bryan could visit a prospective graduate program and Leslie could frolic around California.
The camera wasn't quite fast enough to catch the water running over our feet.
We rolled up our jeans (though not enough to keep them completely dry) and romped gently through the waves.
A bird on a rock.
A Bryan on a rock.
Leslie on a rocky outcrop.

Watching the sun set.
The sunset, 2. (in all honesty, this sunset was photographed 14 times--but we'll only make you look at two)
HOW LESLIE SPENT SUNDAY: While Bryan headed off to presentations, interviews, and bonding with other CS kids, Leslie wandered around La Jolla.
A trail, along the bluff, above the ocean, in the morning.

A close-up of the super grass--this stuff was everywhere.

Extreme close-up of an extremely strange flower, found among the flora on the trail.
Another flower (or: Leslie has fun with the "macro" setting on her camera).

More flora, with ocean in the background.
View: ocean and mossy rocks. (you can see how clear the water is)
Another view, through palm trees.
