Trip to San Diego (via Getty in Los Angeles)           Last Updated: May 29, 2002 

Rosi and Roswitha took a few days in January to travel to San Diego. They also stopped at the Austrian Embassy and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles on the way there, and in Malibu on the way back.

The Getty Museum is in a gorgeous location, has some fine pieces of art, and a WONDERFUL view.

No visit to San Diego should miss at least a day at the Zoo. Here are some of our (baby) pictures.

We also visited Old Town San Diego and hunted for the perfect Sunset spot.

On our way home we stopped at the Paradise Cove for lunch. It seemed to be one of the very few public places on the beach in Malibu, and it felt truly like paradise (even in January the wind sheltered cove was sunny and warm).

Paradise Cove Cafe, parking fee of 20-30 US is waived if you spend at least this much on food and drinks. Well this decision is not hard.  The beach of Paradise Cove  The Bar  Rocks to climb for better views and self portraits or group pictures  Rosi's seafood salad was simply huge!
