Tall Ships and Chula Vista RV Park Labor Day 2011

We started our weekend on Friday with a half day of work and hitting the freeway to San Diego and the Chula Vista RV Park in Chula Vista.Chula Vista RV Resort. This isn't usually our type of camping but we thought we would check it out  The traffic was pretty good and we were checked in and set up by 3pm. Very nice Resort. The weather was perfect lots of sunshine and a nice ocean breeze.  We settled and and had hamburger sliders for dinner. 

We awoke Saturday to overcast skies but temp was nice.  We decided to head out to the Tall Ship Festival at the Maritime Museum. Festival of Sail  We got there early and had a great place to park across the street.  One of the ships was the Star of India. History of Star of India.
Awesome to walk around the oldest active sailing ship. We boarded a couple of other Tall ships anchored at the museum. 

 It was noonish so we headed back to the Resort.  Sunny for the rest of day of which there were walks with Buddee and Liz and naps.  Saturday night the Resort had a country band playing in the park area. We walked  by to check it out.  The band was pretty good.

Sunday the day started out sunny and stayed sunny for the day.  We just lounged around all day with walks around the Resort and Marina.  Around 2:30 we strolled up to the free hots dogs that the park was serving.  Good hot dogs. About 4am on Monday morning we heard the pitter patter of rain on the roof......where the heck did that come from????  By morning it was gone and we had to pack up and head home.  We did drive through a couple of areas of rain on the way. 

Another Great Weekend.
Enjoy the pictures.

Wow. Sounds like an awesome weekend. Wish we could have made it to see the tall ships too. Do they have this event annually? See you soon. Mimi
