Red Bull Air Races 5.4.08

We went down to San Diego for the Red Bull Air Races this weekend. It was a blast! It was crazy how these little planes zoomed around the air gates in under 2 minutes! (A picture of the hardest airgate is below)

They were having a special viewing of the planes & pilots Saturday morning before the show on Coronado Island and we got to see them all up close. Unfortunately, we had driven for 3 hours just to get there and they had no bathrooms on we viewed all of the planes and them zoomed out of there to a rest stop!

We had a great hotel downtown called La Pensione that was in the Little Italy area of San Diego. There were wonderful Italian eateries and we splurged on some yummy gelato, tiramisu, & italian food.

We watched the show at the South Embarcadero just behind the Convention Center. The show was fantastic - so amazing. The acrobatic moves they were doing were incredible. The show was both Saturday & Sunday. Saturday the weather cooperated and was in the 90's. Sunday the fog & colder weather started to creep in and by the time the show ended, it was downright chilly! We had horrible traffic all the way home but made it safe & sound. Great weekend! If you ever have a chance to see these it!! I'm having photo issues again, when I get it fixed I'll update with the photos.

More to follow...
