Star of India And Some Star Sunsets in San Diego

Who said there could not be star sunsets?  I’m sure this was a star sunset.  To me a star, is something that shines bright.  Yes, a star and the sun both shine bright, so let’s just for once call it a star sunset.

I wish the little reflection thing in the water (round green light) hadn’t shown up on my picture, but let it be part of it as I don’t do any retouching of my pictures.

On this same night of the star sunset, just a little earlier, I took a picture of the Star of India.  I like to think this could be the Star of San Diego too.

Even more compelling for the argument of calling it Star of India, and Star of San Diego is when my little girl enters the picture – she is the star of India to me, even though she has not been there yet (India, of course is birthplace of my parents), she is the star of San Diego (her birthplace).  She is the star of the UK (my birthplace) and also the star of Italy (her dad’s birthplace). My little star is associated with four different countries.  Of course, she’s not really a star in these 4 places, just in my eyes.

This picture below was not taken this summer like all the other ones, it was taken last year (even time-stamped).  I’m not sure if I like the time-stamp feature, I stopped using it. I did some posts previously on the Star of India, you can read it by clicking on this link.

So, I’m not sharing many pictures today, in fact, I have been quite stingy with pictures compared to usual.  Sorry for not writing too much lately.  I have been caught up in so many other life events, you wouldn’t believe it.  I hope you are all having a wonderful October.

Spectacular Star of India Sunset

I do enjoy beautiful sunsets, but tonight’s sunset was spectacular – what more do you expect on July 4th?  I hope you all had a great day !

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!
