cTv Model Boat Building Contest – Regent Mariner Cruise Ship

On our last day at sea from San Diego to San Francisco, at long last it’s time for our model ship building contest aboard the Regent Mariner cruise ship. Using nothing more than found, begged, borrowed or _____ items that we gathered on our cruise, we were definitely ready to compete in the high seas (well, at least in the Jacuzzi and choppy swimming pool waters). So bring on the judges assessment of our engineering and design, bring on the popular audience vote… or at least we THOUGHT we were all good to go. Then life happens 😉

San Diego Old Town, 32nd St Naval Base, Miramar Marine Fighter Jets

At last, California Travel Videos reaches the United States while aboard the Recent Cruise Ship Mariner! As we pulled into the harbor we were treated by sorties of Miramar F-35 jets thrusting through the skyways, along with numerous helicopters – WOW! Ditto seeing 50 naval ships – cruisers and destroyer including the latest Zumwalt class stealth ship. On our City Tour we enjoyed spending time at Old Town, with numerous “drive-bys” of scenic highlights and historic locations. Getting back on board, Grace and I made our final tweaks to our homemade model ship, Minniehaha as we prepared for tomorrows competition in the cruise ship’s jacuzzi and swimming pool – so stay tuned…

On our return trips from the Sierras, we dropped by our California State Capitol located at Sacramento (last of 6 locations over 150 years). Outside, the memorial ground dedications and Vietnam statuary are beyond description and inside, be sure to check out the library. We also enjoyed the memorial commemorating Father Junipero Serra who led the quest to support native indigenous Americans with California Missions. In a future video we will highlight the 58 marquee displays featuring interesting tidbids for each of our California Counties.
