The Freeways carve right through the city and I soon found myself heading over the massive and impressive Coronado Bridge. There were some Marbled Godwits wading at the water's edge and plenty of Pelicans dive-bombing the poor fish. The harbour is huge and home to the US Navy's Pacific Fleet
Back in the north harbour area I looked at the USS Midway - an aircraft carrier now a permanent exhibit, the Fish market restaurant and some very tame Herons. I didn't feel like exploring the city centre - it looked pretty much like ost of the others. I did head along the coast for a while to Point Loma and walked along the beach at Newport Beach - a less salubrious version of its namesake further north.
The trip home was tedious as the Interstate was beginning to get busy. At point all five lanes ground to a halt as US Border people pulled a van over and dealt with the occupants - Mexico is only 10 miles south of San Diego.
After such a short night last night, I think it will be an early one tonight!
