Our first two days were spent in an area of San Diego called Shelter Island near Point Loma. It's not really an island, but rather a long narrow man made point that is attached to the mainland of San Diego and was built in the 1930's. It's home to wonderful restaurants, marinas and hotels, as well as a large waterfront park. Our hotel was situated on a lovely private marina right across the street from the bay.
Even though it was a bit hazy we were able to look out over the boat launch and see the city skyline across the bay from our hotel balcony.

As this was our final day on Shelter Island we took a short walk along the bay side public park in front of our hotel.
There is a navel base close by so we were able to watch some of the navel ships coming into port including the super aircraft carrier USS Nimitz which is among one of the largest navy ships in the world.
And as the day came to an end we were able to watch the dusk begin to fall and watch the lights of the city skyline begin to glow in the upcoming darkness.
