November 18, 2014 - San Diego Part 2

Hi everyone!  We are having a blast here in San Diego.  I know some have emailed us worried about no movement of us southbound, but no worries.  We are here provisioning and preparing for entry into Mexico.  We have been purchasing goods and getting ready, but at the same time having a lot of fun.  Below are some pictures of what we have been up to this past week.  We bought a couple of used beginner "long boards" so we can learn to surf during our trip.  The trouble is, the kids won't give us adults any time on them!

We purchased a San Diego pass that has many attractions which hasn't left much time to post anything.  We are using the pass this week, Monday through Thursday.  The kids fell asleep tonight by 7:45 soon after a dinghy ride back to the boat in the dark, and a quick dinner.  Another two days on this pass for us and turning in our rental car.  We are attempting to get to as many attractions/museums as possible!  Lucky kids;  no time for home school this week.

Here are some photos of what we were up to prior to having the attractions pass....

Rock hopping in a local park.  Line up for the next rock.....

A local playground that is new and awesome!

Spider-man would be jealous!

1 adult = 2 kids.  Hmmm....  Steve thought he had more "power" over the kids.

Why do the kids always want to go faster?!
We are anchored next to the Coast Guard station.  It makes for some very
interesting viewing as they practice hovering and deploying people from choppers.

Leaving our boat for the day in the "cruiser's anchorage" in San Diego Bay.

Cindy, trying out the new long surfboard from the boat.  Balance, um... acquired!
Surfboards and kids, ready for the waves.  Steve can't get any time on either board.

Cindy, an easy one......

Kevin, he's already mastered looking good on a board.  Surf's up DUDE!

We will post pictures from some of the attractions we have been visiting, like LegoLand, SeaWorld, and more in a few days.  We expect to be leaving San Diego for Mexico in about a week.


  1. Those are really large boards. Can the kids carry them Dad

    1. Yes they can carry them, they are foam and not fiberglass so that helps. Foam boards hurt less if you fall and they hit you and also we don't worry about dings which is nice. We found a great out of the way spot on our boat deck for them. We will have to take a picture of it, it is quite full!
