I kept telling Tim that was a "big boat". He keps correcting me and telling me it's a "ship." I just like to annoy him. :)
The harbor is also home to the USS Ronald Reagan, which is another really big boat.
There are a LOT of war ships in that harbor - the general idea we got was that it would be a REALLY bad idea to piss off San Diego.
This is a view of the Coronado Bridge from underneath. The legend is that if you kiss will passing under it, you will have good luck. We could certainly use some, so we had to give it a try. :)
After our two-hour cruise, we decided to have a "San Diego experience" and we took a bicycle cab to Seaport Village. It's a kitschy little tourist area right on the water with all kinds of different shops and eateries. We walked through briefly, but I was fried to a crisp and we were both tired. We walked back to the hotel and relaxed a bit. That night, we went to a Vietnamese restaurant called Saigon on Fifth in the Hillcrest area. It was good food, but once again, I'll let you read Tim's review.
It was a great day and we had fun. In hindsight, I probably would have doused myself in sunblock like Tim. Here's a picture of us on the cruise. The guy who took it was a little older and didn't have a clue how to use a camera. My digital camera is pretty self-explanatory, you hit the button and it takes the picture. Anyway, it turned out well.
See my smart boy, all wearing a hat and not bright red at all? That's me next to him - turning into a damn lobster.
Here's the San Diego skyline. Note the building that looks like a Phillips-head screwdriver at the top. The guy doing the harbor tour was a jokester and he said that the National Helicopter Association recently named that building the most difficult for landing. Haha.
