For the August Group Shoot we'll meet in front of the Star of India and spend some time exploring along the waterfront. For those that have not been there in a while there is a relatively new batch of Urban Trees. Also, the San Diego Maritime Museum is a great way to spend a few hours.
Date: Saturday, August 13, 2011
Time: Meet at 9:00AM, group photo at 9:23AM
Place: In front of the Star of India at the San Diego Maritime Museum on Harbor Drive. (We'll meet on the sidewalk in front of the ship, you do not need to purchase an admission to the museum. If you can find the Urban Tree in the photo below, you're practically there.)
For lunch we'll meet at 12:00 Noon at the Elephant & Castle Pub and Restaurant, located at the Holiday Inn at The Bay, directly across Harbor Drive.
For those who are interested, admission to the Maritime Museum is $14 for one time, or for an extra $5 you can buy a pass good for a whole year. Also, as of a few days ago they are no longer charging a separate admission charge for the temporary exhibit of paintings, sculptures and artifacts from Cook, Melville and Gauguin. They also have a nice little collection of black & white prints on display that were taken by Edward Steichen during WWII, mostly of Naval and Marine Aviation activities.
Don't forget the group shoot at Cabrillo on Saturday! Have a great weekend.
We'll meet at the statue of Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo at 9:15AM on Saturday July 9, 2011 for the July Group Shoot. The entry gate to the National Monument opens at 9:00AM, entry fee is $5.00 per car, or free with a National Parks Pass.
Cabrillo Monument was established in 1913, and is located at the tip of Point Loma. The Point Loma Lighthouse was built in 1854.
We can pick a spot at Liberty Station for lunch. Afterwards, those who wish can wander around the restored (and not restored) buildings of the former Naval Training Center. There is also a brew fest with music at Liberty Station in the late afternoon.
