What to do while waiting: Pea Soup Anderson's and a Hadley's are one block away. There is an excellent Greek Food resturant across from Hadley's, a European Deli, and a great Produce Market where I spent $20 just on produce! Great strawberries and Corn! The deli next to it has an impressive array of fresh and smoked meats! Take a cooler!!
Notes: This is one of my standard stops going to or coming from San Diego. Hadley's is a deal. Free samples of food,Restroom and phones... a salesman's dream!

Meter readings::

by Kevin Taylor, 2/06: looking North toward Palomar Airport road.
To the left of the picture is the food court. So the chargers are on the East side of the Costco Building, at the south end of the parking lot.
And yes that is a Prius parked in the other EV charging spot!
