Tales of the South Pacific, San Diego California

What a beautiful day!!!!!!  We pulled into San Diego bright and early.  Corrine & I were picked up by her Aunt Irene and her son Patrick at 8:30 and it was off to the San Diego Zoo. I really love it there.  We had a delightful day wandering around the zoo, checking out the magnificent creatures that call it home.  We arrive back to the ship in the afternon and went to the sail away party on the aft deck.  It was a fun and very scenic sail as we departed San Diego heading for Hilo, Hawaii…..  It will be 5 days at sea ahead as we sail over 2000 miles to reach our next destination….

Tales of the South Pacific, San Francisco, California

It was a bit of a chilly, overcast morning as we sailed into San Francisco Bay this morning….  At least the heavy fog that was predicted didn’t show up.  It was a lovely, picturesque sail into San Francisco.  It was a first time visit for Corrine so we walked about the city, avoiding the rain showers, and hit some of the highlights like Fisherman’s  Wharf, riding on a cable car and a visit to Nob Hill.  The city skyline is so beautiful and I just love Alcatraz positioned out in the middle of the harbor.  It was a relaxing, wonderful day!
