Happy Thanksgiving !!! from San Diego

Thanksgiving Day was a perfect Chamber of Commerce postcard day.   Not a cloud in the sky nor a ripple on Mission Bay.  Fran’s sister and her family live in Pacific Beach and we’ll celebrate with them.  But I forgot the camera!, so here’s a few pictures of the perfect day from my old cell phone.

We start our visit with a walk around Sail Bay toward South Mission and returning along the board walk.

Near the Catamaran Hotel on Sail Bay, would be a perfect day for a sail with a bit more wind.  But the SUP folks did not seem to mind.

Even the birds are enjoying a lazy day near Santa Clara Point.  Most of the tourists on the ocean are also taking it easy.

A game of Foot Volley is about the only action on the beach.  It is volleyball played without the use of the arms/hands – shoulders are ok.  At the higher levels the hitter can do a back flip and while upside down kick the ball over the net – their version of a spike.

Oops not a single picture of dinner nor family.  You’ll have to take my word for it that it was awesome!  And of course I ate too much.  So the following morning Fran and I are up for another walk, but first I pile up the leaves in the front yard.  We do not have to leave the front porch to enjoy the fall colors – and the mess it makes.  As we turn toward toward Mission Bay on Clairmont Drive I’ve annotated some of the changes in the picture.  The area is changing, but in what direction remains to be seen.

The birds are always plentiful in De Anza Cove.  A beautiful egret stand motionless awaiting breakfast.  The sandpipers are a little more aggressive in looking for breakfast, while the seagull appears to be their lazy guest.

Walking past the Mission Bay RV Park I notice that it is quite full, well it is a holiday weekend.  Later I read that Hans and Lisa are here, welcome home Lisa perhaps we might get together this trip.

Each time we walk the park we once called home, another trailer has been or is being recycled.

There will be a meeting in a couple weeks as to what the final plan/plans will be for this area.  I should be able to attend.

One thing is certain, the marsh lands will be extended to include the current Campland space.  Although not uncommon, it’s always a surprise to see a dolphin in Mission Bay.

Kayak fisherman are also a common sight, but this has to be the first baptism I’ve seen performed at De Anza Cove.

Our Thanksgiving was great, a reminder of all the family and friends we have to be thankful for.  I wish you the same blessings we have enjoyed.
