San Diego: Ships, Horatio Hornblower…

When I was in San Diego I saw these two ships. I immediately wanted to climb aboard and stand at the helm like Horatio Hornblower OR Errol Flynn as the pirate. If you haven’t seen the Horatio Hornblower series (1998 – 2003), I highly recommend it. While it’s an older show, it’s not outdated. You will be engaged the entire time.

Take a look:

Here was another ship I saw. I didn’t have enough time; otherwise, I would have signed up for the tour.

It’s amazing to see these ships up close. A few years ago when I was in Sardinia there was a tour ship that was on the horizon. It looked BEAUTIFUL, I longed to see it up close there is such a mystery around these ships. In San Diego, I got my chance, they are a work of art. Intricate with all the details. I did not see a plank.

I hope you enjoy these ships as I did.

  1. The ship in the foreground of your last photo is a replica of the British Royal Navy frigate HMS Surprise. It was built for the Russell Crowe movie “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”. Beautifully recreated! What a great idea to have a “floating museum” like this, especially in San Diego.

  2. It reminds me of 2 years ago when the Tall Ships came here……all good…as long as you don’t have to walk the plank! Not familiar with the TV series but I love historical dramas, so it looks like my kind of thing.
