I wanted to add a little more about the "Star of India" from the previous post. There are several good videos about her modern-day sailing events. So check these out, if you have any interest.
Another interesting item about the waterfront in San Diego that I found especially appealing, were the "Urban Trees"...I have photos of some of them in the web album. Each one is different, by different artists...but all stand out as quite unusual. They march along the waterfront drive, for tourists and locals alike to enjoy.
