It was a glorious day for geocaching yesterday! My young friend Jessika (geo-handle is Hayseek) and I hit the treasure hunting yesterday morning and quite a time of it. We went to Spanish Landing where the San Diego Maritime Museum is building a replica of Juan Cabrillo’s ship, the San Salvador. They are building it to perfect specs using traditional materials. They are using wooden pegs instead of nails, etc. They even have a steam area for bending wood. It was amazing.
Naturally, before Cabrillo arrived, there wasn’t anything here. He “discovered” it like all the other explorers “discovered” distant lands and people. But enough of that.
It was windy and cool. A perfect day to crawl around on the riprap and look for Tupperware.
We did not find a cache here but we got lots of stickers in our hands.
We ended our day at a local airfield where we enjoyed Mexican food at the restaurant and watched the planes land and take off. The most exciting moment was when two planes took off at the same time. Ooops!
Not much of a building but the restaurant is quite nice.
I need to get out more and have good adventures like this. It was a lovely day. I almost forgot! We also stopped at the new downtown library. Oh my!
Wow! Nine floors! Two floors are a charter school. Can you imagine? I was so excited I renewed my library card!
