Boat Show Weekend

02 February 2010 | San Diego
light clouds, light breeze
What a perfect 3 days of sailing. Thursday and Friday were light winds with great sailing. San Diego harbor had light traffic except for the 5 navy ships arriving for weekend shore leave on friday. Saw a school of dolphins in the harbor on thursday, hubby saw a whale...not sure about that. Did abit of geocaching up at Balboa park and then gawked at the yachts on Saturday. Tried a couple of new places to eat, the Broken Yolk in the gaslamp district for breakfast and Bareback Burgers in Mission Beach. All yummy. Visited Coronado Island for dinner and a walk in the full moonlight at Hotel del Coronado. We are definitely returning there for a long weekend. The pounding surf, full moon, and winter sunset pretty much convinced us not to go home...but of course, we had to fly home on Saturday. We will be back next month...gotta get those sailing hours in so we can get on to the next sailing certification and sail into the big water!!
