We're Coming to America!

Last Sunset at Sea

Sunrise over California

Coast Guard Escort

Parents' Boat

At 6:30 in the morning on December 13th we awakened to Neil Diamond's "Coming to America" played over the ship's PA system... The MV Explorer eased into San Diego Bay at dawn, escorted by a Coast Guard boat and several small craft full of parents with signs.  After docking, it was a busy time as luggage and boxes were offloaded and people said their farewells.  Then it was time to disembark, collect luggage and head for the airport....with so many emotions to sort through......

  1. Ah, Rick -- you were in America when you were in Hawai'i.

    50th state, you know. United States. America.
