Seagulls blown inland with the storm

See other great skywatch pictures here.

Our usual blue sky is gone with the arrival of much needed rain. The seagulls are confused or perhaps looking for a better place to hangout than the coast. Some picked this parking lot at MCAS Miramar exchange and commissary complex. Love the rain.

Three Aircraft Carriers at NAS North Island

Visitors to San Diego can see three aircraft carriers in port at the same time.   The ships are pierside at Naval Air Station North Island.   One third of the U.S. Naval Pacific Fleet is home ported in San Diego Bay, designated as a West Coast ‘megaport’, making it instrumental in the National Defense.

Skywatch Friday

The weather in San Diego is unusually warm with beautiful clear skys. Our daughter is flying home tomorrow returning from VERY cold weather in Washington DC and Chicago.  See skys from around the world here at Skywatch Friday.

Crosses have been erected on Mt. Soledid (822 ft.) since 1913 but this cross was built in 1954 as a memorial to veterans who have served our country during times of conflict.  The US Navy administers the federal land just under the cross.  Mt. Soledad and the cross are a visible landmark in San Diego.
