It was fun! We got to see all sorts of stuff.
It didn't smell very good out here. Those boxes the birds are standing on are "bait boxes" & it's full of fish. My favorite part of the tour was this.
I loved seeing all of the sea lions. They were so fun to watch. This one was putting on a show for us. He jumped on & off of the buoy. That black looking thing in the right corner is another one that was swimming around. They're very graceful! A lot of them appeared to be very lazy. Like these.
They just laid there using each other as pillows. I learned something on the tour too. The reason that these are light colored is because they're dry. They have some sort of oil like substance on them & when it dries they're light. These two were having a big conversation. See they have their mouths open?
I wonder what they were saying??
More birds. They were everywhere!
I know this picture looks black & white but it only looks that way because it was so cloudy.
There was a boat having an issue with these guys.
That would be a gun strapped to his leg.
Once we got back to Seaport Village we had lunch at a cute little restaurant called Edgewater. The one problem I found with San Diego is the lack of Dr. Pepper. Nobody had it. At this particular restaurant I ordered unsweet tea. I always order it unsweetened & add Splenda. Well, I should've had my camera ready because the waitress looked at me like I'd lost my mind. Apparently, the South is the only place that drinks sweet tea. Oh well. I got my tea, filled it up with Splenda & was happy!
After lunch we took the ferry to Coronado Island. This was the view of the Convention Center & downtown from the Island.
I was a little disappointed that this was the only beach I saw the entire trip.
Apparently, we should've taken a taxi or something to another part of the island & we would've seen the Pacific Ocean. The island was bigger than what I thought & I didn't realize people lived there but it was a little city. There were some shops & restuarants at the ferry landing. As we were walking around we saw this outside of a little museum.
