I'm taking my partner down to San Diego for her birthday this weekend. And we are going on big boats! (yes, I know, they are ships. but still! the word boats is more pleasing!) We are doing a whale-watching cruise on a motor yacht and then going to visit the world's oldest active ship, the (sail ing ship) Star of India (http://www.sdmaritime.org/contentpage.asp?ContentID=48). And the official tall ship of California, the Californian (http://www.sdmaritime.org/contentpage.asp?ContentID=52).

I love sailing. I have been on tiny little sailboats and small sailboats and hobie cats and trimarans and medium size sailboats, but I have never been on a great big sailboat! I'm super excited because my current novel WIP takes place on one (this one! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concordia_%28ship_1696%29)). Yay! I hope the ship is overflowing with tiny little baby (sub)Plot Bunnies and other inspirational creatures!

There are other, less nerdy destinations planned for this trip as well, fear not.

Know anything fun to do in San Diego besides the zoo? Or any good boats?
