We visited the Hotel Del Coronado yesterday afternoon before the concert. It had been quite a while since Mom and Dad had been there, and now that Dad is retired, he even started wondering about the room rates. After seeing some of the restaurant prices, I don't think he bothered asking. Maybe later he'll check it out on the web. It's probably not much different from the cost of a sleeper car across the country.

Later today, we'll go the end-of-year band banquet as Mom and Dad head up the coast. I dropped them off at the train station this morning a little before 6 am, then drove up to Torrey Pines beach to watch the train go by around 6:40. On time, so far.
