Early morning by the San Diego Bay

Who needs security guards when we have watchful sea gulls looking over the marina?
This is downtown's Embarcadero Marina Park - North...

don't know what the tree is (I'm not a native Californian),

but I sure love looking at it!
** 10 May 2009: I finally found out what sort of tree this is. It's Erythrina caffra (coral tree).

A bunch of navy boats were out making waves. The yellow and orange boat to the right is our harbor pilot... He guides visiting ships in and out of the bay.

Hiya Geisslein and Foodaholic:
Thanks a bunch for stopping by. My camera doesn't do the actual view justice, I think. ;o) San Diego is a really beautiful town!
