The Star of India is a San Diego landmark. Most visitors see it on their way into town as in is very near the airport and close to the cruise ship dock. If you come out this way highly recommend stopping by to see it up close. It is a gourgeous old ship. It is also the oldest Active ship and we are lucky to have it in our harbor. Once in awhile we see it sail out in the bay and turn right back around to park....I was lucky enought to have my camera on another day she while was out (see bottom pic) and we just happen to be sitting in a restaraunt at a window to watch here! WOW, What a treat!
These were taken September 14th.
I saw all these people climbing around up there and I thought what fun! I wish I could do that. So I ran back to the truck and got my camera so I could snap these. In college I knew someone who "worked" on this ship. I use quotes because he told me it was more like "playing" on the old ship or volenteering because the pay was very little and he drove a far distance to get there everyday.
Love this shot!
