A spring Sunday. Life is good on San Diego Bay!

Visitors and members of the Maritime Museum of San Diego enjoy a spring Sunday aboard HMS Surprise. The Star of India's masts rise in the background.

A sunny spring Sunday. So I just walked along the Embarcadero. To no place in particular. I started late this morning at the Maritime Museum of San Diego, where Earth Day on the Bay was taking place. I checked out the exhibits for a few minutes, talked to a few cool people, then walked around outside. And I just kept on walking. Life is good on San Diego Bay.

Today was Earth Day on the Bay at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Exhibitors on the passenger deck of the steam ferry Berkeley demonstrated the work they're undertaking to protect the environment.

It's Sunday, which is volunteer work day at the maritime museum. If I recall correctly, these guys near the San Salvador were applying tar to some steel cables that will be used on the HMS Surprise.

Someone relaxes on a spring Sunday by maneuvering a remote control model sailboat in Tuna Harbor. Another cool sight along San Diego's always lively Embarcadero.

Papa Alex is a very friendly, happy, soulful psychic. He hangs out near Seaport Village and Embarcadero Marina Park North. His motto is: "Peace and love. No drama." Sounds wise to me!

I rested for a bit on the fishing pier at Embarcadero Marina Park South. Here comes the Stars and Stripes racing yacht, carrying people enjoying an adventure on our picturesque bay.

    1. Most people around here seem to be fairly thoughtful about caring for the environment. Lots of outdoor cleanups take place all around the county, with many participants! Although it does seem the beach cleanups are the most popular!
