Tall Ship--The Star of India--San Diego, California

Today there will be a Festival of Sail in San Diego Harbor and at least twenty tall ships will be on parade, including San Diego's own "Star of India", seen here.

I hope to take my camera down to the bay and capture some of the majesty. Below is a collage that shows the San Diego skyline twenty-five years ago (in May 1983) and the way it looks today. San Diego Harbor used to have a free anchorage which lent a lot of character to the bay, but it was outlawed many years ago. I think the harbor view is less appealing now that it is gone.

  2. What a pretty view! Should be fun to see the ships. Wish I lived close to such an area with a great view of the ocean.
