Star Of India – Star of San Diego

I like to think that I have something in common with the Star Of India.  After all, I’m Indian, live in San Diego and was born and raised in England.  Well, the Star of India was put together on the Isle of Man in Great Britain, and now calls San Diego home (just like me).  As to why she has “India” in her name, you can read more about that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_India_(ship)

Here are more pictures of the Star Of India:

By the way, these pictures were taken with my Canon G10.  I still can’t decide if I like pictures taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 better or with the Canon G10.  If you have any comments on what you prefer – the pictures on this post (taken with the G10 or the other Star of India post taken with the Note 3), please let me know.

The Star of India can be found berthed on North Harbor Drive, near San Diego Lindbergh International Airport.  You should not visit San Diego without visiting the Star of India – after all she could easily be the Star of San Diego!

This beautiful ship is the Star Of India, and one of the stars of San Diego.  Did you know that it was put together in Great Britain?

This was a quick post – the first I’ve posted from my phone.  All these pictures were taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.  Next time, I might post more from my computer of the ship taken with my Canon G10.

This is a lunch time post.  Until next time!

Just added to the post at 6:53 pm PST – somehow posting from the phone did not include the first picture that was supposed to be in it, and I also added another!
