Sandra:

It was terrific! I could believe how gorgeous the weather was...because close to the SD Bay it can be quite breezy.

Thanks! Last week Saturday the weather was very warm throughout San Diego County from 80ºF/27ºC - 85ºF/30ºC. in most areas. Yesterday a big storm came through with high winds and heavy rains and we're expecting another big one tonight. I guess we can use the rain after 7 weeks of warm, dry weather. :>)

Hope your brother-in-law enjoyed the show! It was quite crowded around San Diego Bay -- 200,000 plus people showed up. :>)

Have you seen the Red Arrows Delonix? Amazing show they give.

Grandmage:

No, I've never seen the Red Arrows. I'm not sure if they perform here in the U.S.

The big air show performer here in the U.S. is the Blue Angels.

I expect they are similar though, my hubbie says that the Arrows dont perform in the U.S. Shame really.

23 Feb, 2011

 

Grandamage:

I would've been very surprised if they did perform here...since, they're a military based aircraft.

I know, but what a spectacle.

Marguerite:

You're not kidding. :>) Thanks!
