There's lots to do and see in San Diego harbor. Other pictures are available from my first visit, but here are a few more from this time. To the right and below, left are some boats in the harbor. Below, right is one of the marinas. My hotel the first two nights was just behind the boats below -- on land, of course. It was a nice hotel, but with a truly ridiculous "van" policy.

On one of the trips through the harbor, we saw the DSRV Mystic (to the right on the back of the ship) and its "tender" (below, left) -- the support vessel for it. They Mystic was featured in the movie, "Hunt for Red October."

And last, but not least, the aircraft carrier Midway (right) is now a museum in the harbor. They have aircraft from various eras on her decks. Below, left is an F-14 Tomcat; below, right is an F-4 Phantom.
