Shelter Island, a man-made peninsula, was created to house hotels and restaurants for tourists. It is located outside of the downtown area south-west of the airport and just east of Point Loma. All of the hotels and restaurants --except the Bali Hai--are located on the west side of the peninsula with a view of the marina and the natural peninsula we call Point Loma. On the east side of Shelter Island is a strip of land that serves as a park with great views of the Bay of San Diego, it's skyline and for the more active types, boat ramps, fishing pier, walking/jogging paths and picnic spots.
Taxis are the only type of public transportation that comes onto Shelter Island. However, there is a bus stop just outside the entrance of the Island that connects to the SD Trolley.
The photos shown here are of various sights of Shelter Island to give a feel for the look of the place.
The first photo is of the entrance of the Bay Club Hotel & Marina, 2131 Shelter Island Drive, (619) 224 - 8888, Reservations: (800) 672-0800, one of the many hotels located here.
We went for a walk along North Harbor Drive, where the cruise ship pier as well as the Maritime Museum are located.
We met our friends Shirley and Sonny again this year .
Fondest memory: I guess my favorite memory of any place is meeting old friends again.
