Such a gorgeous view from the Ferry Landing meeting area to downtown San Diego! Our friendly, yet polished and enthusiastic Katie, gave us interesting tidbits about the history of Coronado. Our first stop, Peohe's, was by far the best! We had prime seating and were served their luscious coconut crusted shrimp with a yummy dipping sauce. What a treat to have a visit from the executive chef to tell us about the restaurant and show off some of their fresh fish. Then a longish walk down Orange Avenue, wisely stopping on the way for more info of the area several times. Next stop was Night and Day Diner, a small, one man operated place, where we generously given a large fish taco with a delicious mango salsa. One could order beverages if desired. Then just next door to Alexander's Pizza. Another opportunity to sample two of their famous pizzas, a vegetarian and one laden with meat, as well as round balls of tasty dough filled with pepperoni and mozzarella.The 13 in our group left quite a bit... starting to get stuffed! A visit to an olive oil and balsamic vinegar shop was next. The owner gave a great lesson and shared cups of ice cream drizzled with a maple balsamic and almond liqueur. A discount was offered if one wanted to purchase anything. And, one could taste any of the offerings if desired. A cute candy store was next with a freshly made chocolate turtle offered (caramel and pecan in a rich chocolate), then gelato at the last place. We chose to take the 904 bus back to the ferry landing, a mile away. It was a pleasant way to enjoy Coronado. Everyone in the group was very pleasant. Definitely a fun way to spend a weekend day.
