Maritime Museum in San Diego

One of the real treasures of San Diego is the Embarcadero where the Maritime Museum is located. With things going on all years with visiting ships, the museum itself is quite fascinating. 

This year, as many will remember from some earlier posts, the museum with the help of many volunteers is building a replica of the old ship, San Salvador. It should be finished in time for our Centennial Celebration in 2015

Throughout the year, there are tall ships visiting from other countries and San Diego has two tall ships on display all year, the most famous being the Star of India and that is in addition to the ships that offer tours around the Bay. Out in front for this years Tall Ship Festival, I observed a small reconstruction of a tall ship ( The Mayflower ) and it was so wonderfully detailed, I thought it would be fun to share it here in the Rain. The ship is named the Miniflower and is at a scale of 1:10.

Hi Alexandra, If I were any good at photoshop, I would be able to arrange that. But it is fun to pretend anyway and I won't tell anyoone. :-) BTW, You look great next to that ship.

William,

I remember how happy I was when I discovered the Maritime Museum in San Diego. I felt like I was on Treasure Island. The ships were incredible and I felt like I was 9 feet tall. Those ships are a craft and an art that has special meaning. Everyone should make an effort to visit it because it's a wonderful place to explore and dream.

Hi Patricia, I am so pleased you had a chance to experience it. It is so easy to enjoy in that it is just there and easy to partake in. I enjoy just spending an hour or so and watching others enjoy and experiencing the whole of it.

William, Tall ships are such gems to see.  I remember watching the tall ships go up the Delaware River in 1976 to Philadelphia joining in the bi-centennial celebration.  It was such a treat!

Great photo.
