Nautical Weekend in San Diego

Because of the marathon of classwork and homework I’ve had over the week, I needed a break between studying, so we made it a Nautical weekend.  On break between studies, we took a few hours to check out the Star of India, the HMS Surprise and several other ships in the Museum.  The Star of India is the oldest working sailing ship in the world, still able to sail and still getting refitted to keep her afloat.  She’s a sweet ship full of history here on the San Diego waterfront.

Here’s our pics, all shot on IPhone’s.
