Jayce has been begging me to take him on a train. I told him maybe we would ride it up to Grandma and Grandpa's house. But we just never made the time. They had this whole week off of school, so we made it happen! We took the train from Solana Beach to downtown San Diego.
The train station was right down by Harbor Drive, so we walked along the Bay and got some pictures. It was an absolutely beautiful day! This is the Star of India. We saw a group of fifth graders boarding to spend the night. It brought back memories when our kids did it!
Jayce is really afraid of the water. He said "I never want to go on a boat out in the water." It's so funny because neither Mark or I like the idea of being out in the ocean, but we've never told Jayce that. Must be in the genes.
It would have been a perfect day, except we didn't know the rules for getting off the train...like that those getting off have the right of way. We waited patiently for all the passengers to get on and when we tried to get off, the doors closed. We freaked out (okay, I freaked out). We had to ride the train up to Oceanside, get on another train and come back. Geez. We're choosing to smile anyway!
