San Diego California A wonderful place to meet Old Friends and Ship Mates you have not seen since our last reunion in (Nashville)

Trish and I find that the Reunion allow us to visit placers we have not visited before, or revisit a place finding it to have changed since we were there years ago. It is even more fun to go out with a group enjoy the simple good things in life and with friends its even better.

The Photograph was taken by Dave Philips at Sea Port Village with Coronado in the background

Note the Couple enjoying the Sun Set together in San Diego .This photo was taken at Sea Port Village one of our Stops on our reunion  tour.

Seaport Village also was once the site of the Coronado Car Ferry now out of service ( XXX ), but we took the People ferry that still runs across and back.

All Aboard for the  San Diego Hop-On-Hop-Off Trolley

Our Tour Bus drove though old NTC to Stop at the USS RECRUIT, but it was under renovation so I extracted some old Photos  so you could see what it should look like

Yes the Bridge was closed to Motor traffic, but you could still walk across it to the Old Boot camp site.
