Luxury Mission Bay Rental

This pass week, my family and I rented a house near Mission Bay in San Diego, CA.  The house was perfect for the 14 of us vacationing there for a week.  The home sits on Milton Street, on a hill with amazing views of the bay.  It is a three story abode with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, huge living room, kitchen, and dining room with a balcony.  The large master bedroom suite has a walk-in closet, double sinks, big tub, and shower.  Through the double french doors in the master bedroom, you walk into the backyard.  The pool consumes most of the space, and with all the shrubbery surrounding the property, it is very private.  My only complaint is the entrance gate is on an incline which made it sometimes difficult to see on-coming vehicles.  But with the cool 75 degree weather all week, this desert gal loved it.

The house was located near many of San Diego's hot spots.  It was 10 minutes from Mission Beach, Sea World and Historic San Diego.  It took us 15-20 minutes to get to Coronado Island and Seaport Village.  It took the kids 45 minutes to get to Legoland from the house.  We also had many choices of restaurants and shopping stores near us.

Here is the website where you can get all the information on this house if you are interested in renting it:  http://www.vrbo.com/150938

The Old Lifeguard Tower

I saw this lifeguard tower in Mission Bay Beach in San Diego.
I found it fascinating and had to take pictures of it.

Murder and the Plantation

The murder/suicide house and Rosewell Plantation ruins in Virginia are a couple of places to see while in Gloucester.  I couldn't help but to take tons of pictures especially of Rosewell.  Every inch of that place offered a great picture to photograph.  The murder/suicide house was a creepy place with an interesting story.

This magnificent ruins are all that are left to the Rosewell mansion built in 1725-1738 and gutted by fire in 1916. I take you on a photographic tour of what now remains.  Check out my post from last year on this magnificent place:  http://above-the-norm.blogspot.com/2014/08/haunting-rosewell-plantation-ruins.html

This eerie abandoned house in Virginia has sat empty for over 60 years following a murder-suicide. Many rumors have floated around about witches using the place and of ghost haunting the house.  For more on the history of this place and the experience Sharon and I had, check out my blog post from last year:  http://above-the-norm.blogspot.com/2014/07/haunting-murdersuicide-house.html

The Creepy Motor Court

I posted this video last year, but this place was so creepy and overgrown with vegetation, I felt it needed to be shown again.  I want to thank our VA friends who knew we would love to explore and photograph this place.  It was an urban explorers dream place.
