San Diego Bay


Here's some photos of the area along the bay beside the convention center where Experimental Biology 2012 was held. The convention center is between the two large hotels (Marriot and Hilton) in the first picture. You can see that some people own some very large and expensive boats.

  1. I do hope you'll be getting to the wild animal park, which is not to be missed. The zoo is pretty good too.

  2. One of my favorite places to visit on business. Have stayed at that Hilton Bay Front hotel many times. Watched Larry Ellison muck up the start of a RC44 sail boat race. I love the walk from the Hilton to the Airport and back along the bay path.

    Take time to do a palm reading, its a hoot. Or watch the guy balancing the rocks.

    Nice for a place for a conference.

  3. Is that aircraft carrier active or is it a floating museum? It looks a little small for one of our active carriers, although, from the angle, it's hard to tell.

  4. That appears to be the number "68" on the Island structure, which would make her the USS Nimitz, the first of her class. I was stationed on the USS Eisenhower (CVN69)back in the 70's. The Nimitz was stationed at Norfolk at that time. I believe she's still active...
