So the blogosphere is abuzz with Google Maps. We are too. Google SightSeeing has inspired us to go looking for cool stuff in San Diego.

La Jolla Cove

San Diego Zoo

Convention Center

Dog Beach

Torrey Pines Glider Port – I think Black’s Beach is near here

Hotel Del Coronado

Hey! Someone sort of wrote “Coronado” in the sand down there:

And what carrier is this at North Island Naval Air Station?

Looks like these were taken before the Ballpark was Constructed

Here’s the Mt Soledad Memorial Cross

Crystal Pier

Sea World

If you find something cool, let us know. I was hoping to catch a plane in the flight path to the Airport, but no joy.

    Not just near – the southern end of Black’s comprises about the top half of the image.

    Jeff — how did I miss that! Awesome!

    Chuck – thanks for the nude-beach-clarification! :-)

    Also, a person on the Web405 mailing list says the carrier may be the Ronald Reagan. Not sure on that one though – the USS Ronald Reagan only came in July last year. If the times of the images from this post are in sync, I think the ballpark is not done enough for that to be so.

    that “somebody” who wrote “CORONADO” in the sand wasn’t just a kid with a bucket and shovel. look at the scope of that project! a size comparison of those letters to the nearby tennis courts indicates that earth-moving equipment of some kind was involved.

    those dunes have been there for quite some time; i was there several years ago flying kites at night, but i had no idea they formed letters. incredible.
