The Seaport Village was one of the free places in San Diego which offers a thousand of activities you can do.
We strolled along the breakwater to watch the kite flying lovers holding the string…watching it carefully so as not to tangle with another. It wasn’t as easy as it seemed, with the strong wind dragging the kite owner here and there.
The sea was teeming with activities…. Paragliders, jetskis, yachts sailing, taking advantage of the beautiful weather San Diego has to offer.
After a sumptuous seafood dinner at the Harbour House Restaurant, we resumed our walking spree until we reached a very interesting statue which was one of the village’s features.
The “Kiss” statue at the San Diego Waterfront facing faces the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. It was a statue depicting a sailor stealing a kiss from a nurse at the end of World War II.
Beside is the legacy of Bob Hope, commemorated by a major sculptural artwork titled “A National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military”.
A number of shops and seafood restaurants are also available in the area.
Suz truly is different from many people who just want to live a simple life. Her early youth was shaped in the sunshine of the rural Philippines, a tropical country with fascinating landscapes, active volcanoes, splendid beaches, coral waters, tropical forests etc , etc. etc.However, climbing from tree to tree, riding a water buffalo, searching for earthworms under the rocks were just some of the activities that Susana the Intrepid Wanderer loved to do in her youth. Her natural, full time curiosity was shaped at a very early age and has just intensified as time advanced.Decades later, her love for adventure is still evident. In fact, she thrives on the challenges and is committed to life.Instead of climbing trees, she now climbs The Burj Khalifa on board the fastest elevator in the world, rides on the Airbus 380 so she can chase time, and constantly strives to unearth the beauty of humanity by understanding their cultures of its inhabitants. Her " joie de vie" is evident in her writings.Suz is now the adult version of the scrawny 'lil girl of the village. She is now a butterfly fluttering from meadow to meadow,she has come out of the cocoon and is trying to find simplicity in a world, where change is inevitable. She is Susana........our Intrepid Wanderer !
