Jess Travels to Southern California

In late August, Jesi and Marcia took a trip to look at colleges in Southern California.
This is our rental vehicle, which turned out to be pretty sweet.

We stayed with Bob and Sally Guza and their family, in San Diego.

A great dinner out at an Italian restaurant.

Mission Beach, San Diego

Various shots from our trip from San Diego to Irvine to Orange to Los Angeles to Malibu to Ventura and then back down the coast.

The first college we visited was the University Of San Diego. This is one of the schools that made Jesi's short list.

Bob gave Jesi a personalized tour of Scripps Institute of Oceanography (part of UCSD), where he is a professor of physical oceanography.

A little messy, but brilliant! Jes got right into the physics!

The next day we traveled up to UC Irvine, which Jesi found to be too big for her comfort.

From Irvine we drove to Chapman University in Orange (O.C.). Chapman U also made Jesi's short list.

Next on to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles--also on the short list.

Pepperdine University, in Malibu, if beautiful but didn't feel "right" for Jesi.

Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego is located right on the beach--but also didn't feel "right" for Jes.
