Searching for a White Christmas

Searching for a White Christmas

We headed to my Rick and Karma’s hoping for a white Christmas and some great family fun. We drove in a convoy with Erin, Jeff and the kids. Dustin flew in from Baltimore.

And, boy did we find what we where looking for.

Great fun in the snow…

Cruising San Diego Bay

Cruising San Diego Bay

Sunday…Beautiful day…Dustin in town…Lets head out on Duster for a couple of hours of motoring around the Bay!

 

As we were topping off our tanks, Pyewacket (formerly owned by Roy Disney) stopped off for some fuel while heading back to Newport Beach from the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race.  She won the Division 2 Class and was 5th overall.  Not too shabby.

Tall Ships are a regular sight on our Bay. The Californian is a replica of the C.W. Lawrence, a revenue cutter from 1847

The USS Midway. Commissioned a week after World War II. She played a huge role in Southeast Asia. We have a close friend who flew off the Midway in Viet Nam. She is now a must see museum on our water front, just up from the Maritime Museum.
