11 December 2016
In the afternoon we went to the beach and I found 2 dozen more sand dollars. The beach on the Naval Air Station seems to have quite a few, probably because there are less people on the beach.
In the evening we went down to the end of Orange Ave to view the lighted boat parade. This year the theme is animals in celebration of the 100th birthday of the San Diego Zoo. Participating were some 80 boats very festively decorated for Christmas. The route starts at Shelter Island and goes up the San Diego side, crosses under the Coronado Bridge and travels down the Coronado side. Below are some of the many pictures we took, not the best as I haven't mastered night photos with the Android.
The parade takes place on the 11th and again on the 18th. Dates differ each year, but think it might be the 2nd and 3rd Sundays in December.
