An Eclectic Post

I have so many pictures to post, but since we're back in Tucson I haven't spent much time online - you all know why.  In Colorado, we went to the USA Women's Soccer match vs. Australia with the Thomason family.  Some pre-game anticipation.
 I know you've seen game photos, but you can actually see the ball in the goal here!
Then Bart went to Cape Cod for SEA meetings and a little fun.
We left Colorado mid-October via Aspen.  It was a little snowy on the day we left.
Couldn't resist taking a picture of this sticker!

Tall Ships and San Diego

I did go to San Diego in early September, where many houses hang out over the ocean, and the Festival of Sail 2012 was going on about a half mile from the train station.  I was at the train station to ride to Santa Barbara - and had a couple of hours to spend before my departure.

Tall Ships - this one is now named "The Surprise" and was used for the movie Master and Commander, but more importantly, it used to be named "The Rose" and Chris served as a mate on it for a couple of years.  In 1996 Bart sailed on it, with Chris, from Portsmiths, England to Saint-Nazaire, France.
