Thanks for joining me on my urban trees series. These are just a few of the amazing sculptures on exhibit along the San Diego Harbor (Embarcadero). Tailwalking Suncatcher is one of my favorites as I love to fish. This is so beautiful close up. Thank you to all the artists for your beautiful work!! I will be showing you some more public art in a few days. Next exhibit will be from the Desert.
Directly behind, is The Star of India. She is the world's oldest active ship. She began her life on the stocks at Ramsey Shipyard in the Isle of Man in 1863.
In the center is one of a fleet of diesel electric submarines the Soviet Navy called “Project 641,” B-39 was commissioned in the early 1970s and served on active duty for more than 20 years.
To the far left is the HMS Surprise which is a magnificent replica of an 18th century Royal Navy frigate.
The Maritime Museum of San Diego is doing a fantastic job restoring and maintaining these historic vessels. For additional information please visit: http://www.sdmaritime.com
