Frivolous Friday: Fireworks, The Coronado Ferry and a Shark!

Frivolous: carefree and not serious, lighthearted, giddy
What three things happened this week in between all
my portrait sessions and retouching work???
Well…let me tell you….
Yep, this happened #1:
Had a close encounter with a very  big shark!  But don’t worry,  I smiled the whole time and lived to tell about it.  (I do hope this is as close as I ever get to a great white!)
The whole story of where this amazing mural is, what I was doing there
and why I recommend you visit is ON MY BLOG
Yep, this happened #2:

 I checked off something from my lifetime bucket list this week!

 I rode the Coronado Ferry!
Don’t ask me why I’d never done it, but I’m excited to report that hubby and I had
a stay-cation downtown on 4th of July and we included a ferry ride as part of our adventure.
And it was great fun!  We walked around Coronado and enjoyed some window shopping, a whole lotta people watching and a big ole root beer float before heading back to San Diego.
And while we were on the ferry crossing the bay we had to wait in traffic.
We let the Dole cargo ship go first…because we are polite
and because he was a lot BIGGER than us…..
And I’m thinking some of the produce from that ship might have appeared on my plate of Coconut Shrimp with mango pineapple salsa – from Buster’s Beach House in Seaport Village…
And seeing that Dole cargo ship made me wonder so I did some research on our port –
– here you go in case you are wondering too:
 Our three primary imports are:  Bananas, Fertilizer and Cars!
A huge portion of the port’s commerce is bananas — Dole bananas, to be specific.
Dole brings 40-foot, refrigerated containers in on a boat and plugs them in to
 keep the produce from spoiling.
Fertilizer:  Manmade fertilizer from Norway to help
San Diego farmers grow crops.

Cars:  About one out of every 10 imported vehicles in the United States

comes through the port!
Yep, this happened #3:
We enjoyed the Big Bay Boom from our waterfront picnic at the Embarcadero….and afterwards, instead of fighting traffic home, we strolled to our room at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel
for a luxurious continuation to our stay-cation.
Didn’t bring my big camera to the fireworks, but captured a fun little video with my point n shoot!
