San Diego.... Random pics
#1
Some random pictures while I was driving 100 miles around San Diego County today to establish some economy tune mileage for my truck with the Superchips Cortex Economy tune installed…
Sorry for the crappy pics but I didn't get out of my truck to take but a few…..


Cruise ships at the cruise ship terminal downtown:

CV-41 USS Midway… Navy Museum…

This was a Prop 8 truck driving round town…

Coronado Bridge (CA 75)
Looking north:

West:

South towards Mexico and the shipyards to the west…

Downtown Coronado.. Orange Avenue.. About a mile from the Hotel Del Coronado and 3 miles from the Navy SEAL base…

I wanted to get some pics of the SEAL base but CA 75 splits the base in half and there is no parking/stopping on the way to Imperial Beach. I did see some SEAL recruits carrying telephone poles and on the obstacle course…
Interesting fact. The Coronado Bridge was built in WA and towed by barge here. The spans float so as not to sink in case of attack and block the harbor. Carriers and Submarines are stationed north of the bridge and the rest of the fleet is south. Rumor has it there are a large amount of explosives under the Silver Strand Isthmus to blow it up and make a route for the southern fleet to get out to sea.. Dunno, just some local lore..

Why is it every other part of the country photographs better than your own. Or is it every part of the country other than MS.

You kidding? I'd love to go to MS and wheel with you guys, your terrain looks awesome! Could it be because your own countryside is normal to you, so you appreciate other parts of the world more since they're so different? I dunno.... 179

By the way, whose truck is that? It looks familiar... 192

Let me get this straight; you went for a joyride to check your economy? 204

I appreciate the pics, because I have never seen that part of the country. The prop 8 sign is funny!

I understand the reason for the ride. I just had to yank your chain a bit. 165


Mdawg, I think our area looks great. Could be because I am originally from NJ.

Could be the Chilean Navy training ship, two I know it is not are;
The Falls of Clyde, last seen rotting in Honolulu
The Cutty Sark, caught fire last year at the dock in London.
The Star of India still sails, there was an article out two years ago about a cruise from the dock out past Point Loma and back again.
Ahh, for the days when Boats were made of Wood, and Men ( and women Wink) were made of Iron.
