San Diego

It all began with the marriage of Dave's daughter, Diane, to Jack Terrill in New Hampshire.  Since we could not make the wedding we planned a glorious "meet-up" in San Diego where Dave's son Doug lives.  What a wonderful opportunity for the Coopers and the Terrell/Terrills to get together.  Nowhere was more interesting than Balboa Park - a "must see" in the area.

While in the area, we stopped to stay with Dave's old friend, David Robbins and his girlfriend, Victoria, in his ecclectic home at LaGuna Beach.

David knows my passion for primative art so we spent several hours, plus a lovely lunch, at the Timken Museum of Art - the home of many South Pacific artifacts.  I really enjoyed this.

Of course, nothing would do but that we visit the Queen Mary, at dock outside of L.A.  I had always wanted to be able to go on one of these fine old ships and was not disappointed in the least.  What a great Lady of the Sea.

We had a wonderful visit to SEA WORLD and totally enjoyed seeing scenes from our snorkeling ~~~

Ane, of course, no visit to San Diego would be complete without visits to the two most famous yacht clubs in the area - - the Dana Point Yacht Club, just down from where David Robbins lives, and the San Diego Yacht Club, home of many of the defending America's Cup races.
