Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior visits San Diego.

This afternoon, during my Sunday walk, I was surprised to see the Rainbow Warrior, the well-known ship of the activist group Greenpeace, docked down on the Embarcadero.  It seems they were visiting San Diego, and loads of people were streaming onto the ship for tours.  I had my camera with me so I snapped some pics.

This first photo shows the bow of the ship.  A banner proclaims Free The Arctic.

Look at all the folks in line!  I saw lots of young idealists with clipboards and older hipsters in line.  Several signs and displays were set up on the walkway promoting the Greenpeace mission.

Strung between the masts was a transparent banner reading OCEAN SAFE TUNA NOW.  It was so large that it was visible several blocks away.
