Excellent Adventure, Part Two

We woke up Saturday morning, to grey skies, and a pretty chilly day.  But we didn't mind one bit.  We took a walk, and had breakfast, and then set out to the Embarcadero to take a 2 hour Harbor Cruise.  Luckily I had jeans and sweatshirts, because it was COLD on the water!!  We took our seats up on the top tier of the Flagship and waited for the cruise to begin.
The beautiful San Diego Sky Line.
That is the USS Midway Naval Ship behind the people standing on top deck.  We want to go on that tour next time.  We learned a lot, saw a lot, and froze our buns off!!!  We got to see a few sea lions lounging around on the bait docks.
We saw a dolphin too, but I didn't get a very good photo.
The bridge to Coronado Island.
I took this photo of Greg in front of the USS Midway Ship.  And he took one of me.  I have a visor on, but it looks like I just have piles and piles of hair!!!
We were going to go to Little Italy after the cruise, but it had gotten so crowded that we changed our minds. 
We drove the short distance back to our campsite, and warmed up a bit.  I made a huge platter of Nachos for lunch.
And isn't this the loveliest photo that Greg took of me!  Wind blown hair, and double chins and all!!!  Oh well.  It is what it is! 
And then, I believe we both took a bit of  a nap.  He was outside on his zero gravity chair, but I stayed bundled up inside!! 
We barbequed hamburgers for dinner, and then Greg made us some fresh popped popcorn.
He used our outdoor kitchen to make the popcorn, using a whirly popper.  Our favorite way to make popcorn! 
There he goes again, getting such a flattering photo of me!  I was knitting, and had clipped my windblown hair up out of my eyes.  So pretty!!!  Thanks dear!  But the popcorn looks good, doesn't it!
It was a nice relaxing day!  Cold and cozy!
We got up Sunday morning to a bit better weather.  We took a long walk on the beach.  It was very low tide.
 I was looking for sea glass, but didn't find any.
Greg took this of me.  I don't know what in the world I was doing?  But it did reflect my happy mood.
We walked all along the beach, then along the Marina, where we went to have a delicious breakfast sitting outside on the patio looking at the water.

We were wishing my brother Dave was there with his boat.  Maybe next time.
One the way back to our campsite, we took a photo of this Fifth Wheel.  Wow!  It had two slide out decks!!!


That's what I call "Roughing It!" 
We went back to break down our campsite, and headed for home.  It was a fun weekend, but too short!  We decided that this was far enough away that we would really like to have a 4 day weekend to go again.
If you live in the Southern California area, I hope you try Chula Vista RV Resort!  A must go!
Thanks for coming along.....
XO  Kris

I'm so glad to see the both of you enjoying your new trailer and having fun adventures. I always enjoy having a crochet project while I'm camping. And what fun to go on a boat cruise! We went on the sternwheeler today and I do love being out on the water. I know you're a water baby too. Enjoy your summer with your wonderful guy and I hope you have lots more adventures together. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Chilly morning on the water, nachos, and a nap. That sounds superb.

I just wanted to stop by today and say Happy Anniversary Kris-at least I think we share the same anniversary? Now, I'm wondering; know we share the same birthday. Anyway, loved seeing your adventure. Have a great weekend!

I personally think you look adorable. so glad you had a fun time on your trip.

Jeanna said...

You definitely have to visit the USS Midway when you go back. We enjoyed our visit to San Diego last year. I don't remember you being so close.

Looks like a fun time. Can't wait to see more of your camping adventures.

I never thought that I was interested in trailer camping until my youngest daughter and son in law invited me to sleep in their trailer a few weeks ago when we camped in the I'm hooked :) I love the site that you and Jeeps found to visit, and I hope you get to enjoy many more adventures together! I look forward to further reports from you! xoxoxoxo
