Friday January 12th, Saturday January 13th, Sunday January 14th, & Monday January 15th,2001

The convention started in earnest Friday with a wide variety of speakers. 

Aaron was scheduled to speak about 'Bees in Cyberspace', so we worked on his presentation which used my laptop computer to show selected websites. 

Saturday night, we went on a tour to Tijuana to look around and do a bit of shopping

On Monday, I came down with a cold that had been going around.  It started with a sore throat and lowered my enthusiasm level for several days.

We have been able to check in  to BEE-L regularly during the week, and I have written to Bee-L with some of what I found to be highlights of the convention.

Here are all my BEE-L posts since Nov 1, 2000

Tuesday January 16th, 2001

The convention is now over.  We had thought to make some contacts and visit local beekeepers during the balance of the stay, but since I have been sick, I did not get anything set up.  Although there were some reports that the almonds were almost beginning, a trip to see them means a 500 mile drive and we don't have a car.

We moved out of the Marriott, and over to a cheaper accommodation at the Mission Valley Super 8.  We bought 4 day Trolley passes for $12 each, got onto the Trolley and before long found ourselves at The Mexican border.

The border viewed from the foot bridge from the USAWe walked over the foot bridge into Tijuana and enjoyed the tacos, the people and the beer -- and Aaron went nuts about the stained glass on sale in the markets there. 

I was still a bit weak and the weather was cool, so we returned to our hotel early in the evening.

Today: Becoming mainly sunny. Wind increasing to northwest 20 km/h. High minus 5.

Tonight: Mainly clear. Wind northwest 20. Low minus 11.

Wednesday January 17th, 2001

Having a beer at the borderWe relocated to a more central motel in Little Italy, and then went down to Tijuana again.  I had made a friend of a street vendor who happened also to be a beekeeper and he told us how to catch the cab to Rosarito.  I had not been there for 10 years, so we jumped into the back of a station wagon and of we went to Las Playas de Rosarito.

Allen & friend on beachAaron at RosaritoWe arrived about mid-afternoon and headed to the beach.  Just as I remembered from years back, horses were available to rent on the beach. Aaron wasn't interested, but for $3, I made a deal and went for a ride.  The horse was slow, but that was just fine by me. We wandered the beach until sundown, then went up town.

We looked around, then got another cab back to Tijuana and then caught the trolley back to our motel in San Diego.

Today: Snow mixed at times with rain ending this morning. A mix of sun and cloud this afternoon. Wind northwesterly 20 gusting 40 km/h. High plus 3.
Tonight: Increasing cloud overnight. Low minus 8.
