San Diego Trip Number Four, California, US - 22nd September 2005

Nosher's in San Diego, California, for the fourth time this year. Whilst there, Ken Davis, from Qualcomm, takes Nosher out for a photo session in Torrey Pines state park, near Del Mar just outside San Diego. The primary mission was to look out for a rocket launch from Vandebergh AFB, which sadly wasn't seen, probably due to clouds which drifted over just at the wrong time. However, it was still a good session, and was capped off with an excellent home-cooked dinner and evening of political conversation courtesy of Ken and his wife. Later on, Russell fancies a drive somewhere in his all-singing SUV, so we head over to Solana Beach for a quick look at the sea. Russell mills around whilst a few long-exposure shots are taken over the sands whilst the sea occasionally overtakes the tripod. Then, it's back to the Marriott bar, San Diego, which is normally fairly quiet, but which this night is the regular Salsa dancing session and so it's fairly packed. Time for lots of "what paper are you working for?" queries
