san diego

Our flight left in the evening on Monday, so we went down to San Diego early and spent the afternoon at Harbor Island looking at the historical ships. Donathan was in heaven. For those of you who don't know, he is a sailor and has grown up with yachts and looooooves tall ships, so we have hundreds of pictures of riggings and all that fun stuff, which I won't bore you with.

This ship is the Star of India. It is the world's oldest active ship, built in 1863.

This ship is the HMS Surprise, used in the movie "Master and Commander"-of course, a favorite of Donathan's.

We had such a good time-perfect weather too. Wish we could've stayed a little longer.
