2/10/10 San Diego Harbor Island West Marina

Jan and Debi got off about 5:30 AM in a taxi headed to the train station. They were both grumbling about having to go "back to work". We will miss their company and assistance.

Porters flight was canceled due to the big snow storm. They took the Amtrak back to Albany, rented a car and drove to Montreal. They are spending the night there and taking an early flight to LAX, renting a car and driving to San Diego to join us. Now those are good friends!! Steffi is still stuck in DC and Robert is trying to get on a flight from here on Thursday. Steven's flights from Albany to LGA to Wilmington were canceled and put off until Saturday. This storm sure has put a halt to East Coast air travel.

Dan and I were able to purchase the necessary Mexican Fishing License for the Porters and us. Glad to get that out of the way. We did a lot of walking today and saw the US Coast Guard and Naval Police boats and helicopters out in force. Think they may have been involved in practice maneuvers. Lots of action anyway.


  1. Wow! If I knew that your trip was going to be the cause of so much air travel, I would have started a charter service!!!

    Has the Navy stopped by yet to inquire about those photos you took of their boats?

    By the way, that's a nice big horn!! It must sound like the noon whistle when you pull the string.

    Have fun and keep the pictures coming!!

  2. Can't begin to tell you how much fun we had going to San Diego. The water got a "little" choppy on Tuesday as Dan was trying to race the storm into the marina. There were a few of us who were a little green. But the dolphin escort made it all worthwhile.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for letting us join you on your journey. Have fun, don't do anything we wouldn't do ( ;-D ), and be safe.

    Love, Jan
