Palm reading Coronado Island style

We didn’t stay in the Hotel de Coronado, but we had a grand time walking around outside and admiring the grounds as well as the stately building itself. Palm trees are iconically California (and Arizona), but they do a lot of shedding and take a great deal of work, work you have to pay someone else to do. I’ll stick with just admiring them on someone else’s property. 🙂

  1. I love ‘looking’ at them. In SC, even Walmart has palm trees as part of their landscaping. I must admit it always makes me chuckle.

  2. This is such a beautiful hotel. Like you, we didn’t stay there, but the walk around the grounds and on the beach was enjoyable anyway.

  3. It is a beautiful building isn’t it! I’m with you on the palms. At our old house our next door neighbor had one in the back yard and though it was beautiful and home to many birds I was a little afraid it was going fall over in the worst winter storms. Thankfully it never did while we lived there.

    • Some people near us had their two palms cut down. Sometimes if there are high winds, fronds are all over and once in a while a tree goes over.

      When we lived in Ohio, a regular and quite tall tree came down from the neighbors’ across the street. Fortunately it fell towards the street and not on their house and also fortunately didn’t make it to any of our trees or lawn. 🙂

  4. Those palms are so tall!

    Beautiful moment you captured at the Coronado, Janet. And I like your catchy title, too.

    We have random palm trees all around our neighborhood. Sometimes when I take a picture of the sunrise outside our back door I can get a couple in the shot. Makes me think I am in some far away tropical island…except for the rooftops that also happen to be there – LOL. Great shot.

    what a hotel, and like you I love palms – glad though I am not responsible for the upkeep of either!

    I stayed at the Coronado once about twenty years ago. The rooms in the main building are quite old and small (and supposedly haunted) but it was fun.

    Hey, me and Marilyn were there! Not at the same time, of course.

    They are beautiful trees. These go very well with the size of the building.

  11. de Wets Wild says:

    Both the trees and the building are quite impressive!

  12. You weren’t far from us. Coronado is one of our favorite spots. Many beautiful views from the hotel and the surrounding area.

    Wow it’s gorgeous!

  14. […] are also fabulous posts to read at sunset and even palms to be read, so try and spare a moment and discover an ancestor or two with […]

    I love the wit & whimsy of your title! paired with the image!
