Friday Night Harbor Cruise

On Friday night delegates set sail on the California Spirit for an evening harbor cruise. The dinner cruise was a memorable experience that combined 25 scenic miles of magnificent San Diego Skyline and fine dining. While cruising, the San Diego Bay welcomed us with a gorgeous sunset, beautiful views of the San Diego skyline by night, Coronado Bay Bridge, Seaport Village, the Star of India – the world’s oldest active ship and the Pacific Fleet which is host to some of America’s most historic warships such as the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan and the retired aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Midway.

Delegates and guests had a great time on the 2 1/2 hour harbor dinner cruise, which included a glass of champagne upon boarding, a three-course dinner and dancing with DJ entertainment.

Foundation Director, Cindy Olson and International Secretary, Marit Kristiansen have dinner with delegates.

The DJ played a variety of music for our listening and dancing pleasure. And let me tell you, it was a great time! Just take a look at Dan Rude on the dance floor if you don't believe me.

Overall, it was a great night. There was plenty of fun to be had, sights to be seen and time to be spent unwinding from a long couple of days of delegate meetings. Everyone had a great time and we were all sad when the evening was over. After a night like this, the folks hosting the 2010 convention in Coeur d'Alene, ID, sure have their work cut out for them, but I'm confident they are up to the challenge.
