Before leaving Pepperdine, Brian and Kim took us to the Heroes Garden. It was built to remember those affected by 9/11. One of the members of United flight #93 was a Pepperdine alumni. Heroes Garden sits way up on campus with a beautiful view. It was very windy when we were there but still well worth it. As you can see Joel is enjoying himself while Evelyn tries to comfort him. She's sweet that way.
I decided to leave the golf clubs at home but I still insisted we make a stop at the most beautiful public golf course, Torrey Pines, site of this year's US Open.
While in San Diego, we drove to the Cabrillo National Monument. It's on a peninsula so you can look one way and see the San Diego Bay and the entire San Diego skyline. You can look the other way and see the Pacific Ocean. Just before you get there is the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. It's sort of the Arlington National of the West, rows and rows of white tombstones.
We had a great vacation but were all a little worn out and ready to get home.
