Our Trip to San Diego

  • A Photographic Panorama by Dori Stern (Age 14), Laura Schwartz (Age 13), and Aaron Stern (Age 9)
  • [with a little help from Steven Stern (surprisingly young)]
  • A Sunset on Coronado Beach

  • Dad's Comments: Dori and Aaron were really excited by the beach. Dori went in the water up to her knees (despite its ice cold temperature). Aaron didn't go as far but eventually fell and got everything wet. Laura was too sophisticated to find the beach as exciting and thus acted more rationally (and took really great pictures).

  • Laura's first masterpiece

  • And second

  • And third

  • And fourth

  • And fifth
  • Aaron at the Beach

  • Dad's comments: A disaster waiting to happen
  • The San Diego Skyline

  • Dad's comments: These are all taken while on our way to see whales. We had many pictures of whales. But, even though it is very exciting to site the whales, you can't capture it in a photograph.

  • Here is our (Laura's) best shot of a whale.
  • Dori, Laura, and Aaron in Tijuana

  • Dad's comments: We went looking for bargains in Tijuana shops. At first the kids were afraid to bargain. But by the end, Dori became a shark as she bargained a merchant from $10 down to $3 for a puppet. Then we went shopping in the non-tourist part of Tijuana (because we were lost) for sandals for Aaron. We discovered that Dori knows no Spanish as shoe salesmen repeatedly looked at her with complete lack of understanding as she tried to explain what we wanted. Ms. Sanders, you should take this into account when grading Dori for the year.
  • Aaron with a Lion at the Zoo

    Dad's Comments: As usual, Aaron is unaware of the danger he is in as a viscious lion considers a delicious Indian meal.
