Cruising The Harbor

Monday….Sometime last month, I got my daily groupon deal of the day,  for San Diego. It was a great deal on a Harbor Cruise in San Diego. I immediately bought it, knowing we would be looking for things to do while here.  Since they are calling for temps to drop a bit and possible rain over the next few days, we decided to go for it today.  We boarded and were on our way….

That wraps up our stay here at Pio Pico in Jamul.. We have really enjoyed this out of the way campground, nestled in the midst of the mountains, but a short drive into the city.  San Diego is at the top of our list right now… We loved every minute exploring it!

Wednesday we head 80 miles down the coast to Camp Pendleton..

I believe the sailor was kissing the nurse at the celebration in New York of the end of the war in Europe. I don't either of them was ever identified, and they were probably complete strangers, but the spontaneity of the moment took over.

San Diego is probably the most beautiful cities in the U.S. and clean! (in our opinion)
