Huntington Beach visit August 2012 post 2

Wednesday was a great day spent with my daughter.  We said goodbye to the boys and went Shuttle busdowntown Huntington Beach for breakfast.  Then we were off to the Irvine Amtrak station to catch a train to Solana Beach where the free double decker shuttle bus took us to the Del Mar horse race track.  There were some beautiful views of the Ocean as we travelled along the coast.
We signed up for the Diamond Club which gets us free admission on Free Wednesday as well as half price hot dogs and beer on free Wednesday.
The Del Mar horse race track  was running 8 races that day from 2PM until 5:40PM which left enough time to catch the last train at 6:41 back to Irvine.  We then went to Roman Cucina for dinner and then back home.
Ocean View from the trainWe had a good time and won enough times to keep us going without going broke.  Neither of us had much horse racing or betting experience and we are certainly not high rollers but we had a great time, a hot dog, funnel cake and a couple of cocktails.

Wow, Al, now that sounds like a blast!  I know that you and your daughter got some great "bonding" time in, too, without the distractions of the kids.....although they are adorable.

Thanks for dropping in Bob, Suzanne, Marie and Larry & Sheila.  The nanny watches the kids from 8-4 during the week Bob, since my daughter and son-in-law both work.
