Come and join us!

Sunny and 75 in San Diego

summer11 016

Come B & B our guest in sunny San Diego. On the beach today it’s 75 degrees. For you surfers the waves have been 10 feet tall this week.

Alden Taylor a repeat guest from Wisconsin, was sad to leave today as the weather was too beautiful to be flying away from. She has just published her first book, “Harry Taylor Who Dat Dog.” It’s all about the dog’s adventure in New Orleans. Harry solves the mystery of the Chef’s missing hat by using his nose with 4 feet.  If you’d like to read more about Harry, go to

We are hoping that Alden will write her next book about Harry’s  adventure in San Diego with the Chargers.

We are excited for Alden and look forward to her next visit.

Happy 125th Birthday OB!
