An enraged King Kong arrives in San Diego!

King Kong arrived in San Diego this morning! And he doesn’t appear to be very happy about it!

I spied the gigantic, enraged ape near the Omni Hotel, in a patch of grass to be known as Skull Island during 2017 Comic-Con. Many workers were using all of their strength to wrestle King Kong into position. I didn’t see a huge cage or massive leg restraints. It appears the ferocious beast is being set loose in our city. Good thing Dole’s cargo ships carry millions of bananas each day into the marine terminal near the Hilton. Maybe that will tame the big monkey.

I'm not sure I'd want to be caught in the grip of King Kong. Those guys better be careful.

Another sun? We have enough tropical humidity here in San Diego during our monsoon weather.

King Kong is so enraged it takes two sturdy workers to hold him at bay! I hope the movie ape doesn't escape and go on a rampage during Comic-Con!

I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!

A crabby waiter serves a surf monkey!

A boring old utility box in Hillcrest was transformed by an inspired artist into a colorful canvas. This fun example of urban art depicts a meditating monkey sitting by the surf, with white clouds and a volcano in the background. He’s being served a beverage by a crab!
