Coronado: The Crown of San Diego, Coronado, California (B)

It’s name in Spanish means ‘crowned’, and that might begin to give you a hint.

I’ve been to Coronado several times over the years…to visit the beach, to show off the Hotel Del Coronado to out-of-town visitors, to ride bicycles past the multi-million dollar homes, or to attend a play at the Lambs Players Theatre.
