Anchors Away! San Diego Fleet Week

Monday, October 3, 2011

Happy October friends!  Hope this month brings you lots of fun fall activities and happiness!!  I'm jealous for all of you who live in a place where there are actually seasons.  But I think I can handle the lack of seasons if it means fun outdoor activities all year round.  Case in point, the other week I made my way down to San Diego to spend the weekend with my friend who I hadn't seen in months and the weather was amazing - in the 70's, sun shining, would've been totally happy in shorts kind of weather.  Glorious, glorious so cal weather!

Aside from the weather, it was a great weekend away and we had a blast finding free and fun things to do around the city.  We spent Saturday down at the San Diego Bay by the water, taking in San Diego Fleet Week events.  A couple weekends a year the local Navy and Marines bring theirs boats, tanks, and trucks to the marina downtown so that the public can walk around and see them all, for free!  They had tours of the boats, hover craft and Coast Guard rescue demonstrations and live music.  The weather was prefect and we had a blast playing dress up with the Marine's vests and helmets.  

It's so cool to have such a prominent military presence in San Diego.  They are such a large part of the community and they do so much for the city and the country.  It makes me proud to (have) live in a city that prides itself on the military presence and recognizes their duty to our country through events, memorials and special ceremonies.
