So last night my buddy Frank came down to go to happy hour with me. I hadn't put my outboard on the dinghy yet so I rowed into Tidelands Park and met Frank, he had this funny, deer in the headlights look on his face as we strolled through the beautiful park towards my truck, finally Frank blurted out "buddy, this place is REALLY NICE". We drove over to a place called Coronado Ferry Landing, which is a bayside commercial center full of restaurants, art galleries and tourist type shops, it is also home to one of San Diego's highest class dining establishments, Peohe's. I had seen a place on one of my earlier trips called Candelas, which seemed to have a good happy hour...so that's where we settled in, all along the way Frank kept repeating "buddy THIS IS REALLY NICE"
It seems that when Frank heard that I only pay $225.00 a month in rent he assumed that I was holed up in the ghetto, (I'm not), it also seems that one of Frank's neighbors, who couldn't tell the truth on a bet, told Frank that gang bangers would don SCUBA gear and swim out to my boat and strip EVERYTHING off of her, "BUDDY THIS IS REALLY NICE".
Coronado is one of the most exclusive places to live in San Diego, their website calls it "a small beach community with an island atmosphere". Coronado is home to the Hotel Del Coronado, (more on the del later), a large naval base and a major Navy SEAL training center. As Frank settled in to the " island Atmosphere" and we had another $2.50 Pacifico, he said " buddy I have a completely different opinion of where you live, I just thought for $225.00 a month you had to be in a real shit hole, BUDDY THIS IS REALLY NICE".
I haven't seen any SCUBA equipped gang bangers yet...but I will keep an eye out for them.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
Extra: I am currently in Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta area), where I will be spending the 2012 hurricane season at the beautiful Paradise Village Marina.
