Coronado Island is a popular tourist destination located on the Bay of San Diego. When you look at it on a map it is plain to see it is not an island at all but a peninsula that forms the northern end of the bay, a true natural harbor and deep water port which is home to the United States Navy's Pacific Fleet and a docking station for cruise ships.There is a ferry that runs from Coronado to San Diego, about a ten minute trip each way, with a fifteen minute layover on each side. The name of the ferry I took was Silver Gate, a small boat no doubt converted from some earlier unknown use. It was a crisp slightly overcast day, early in the morning. At least early for tourists since the shops don't open until 10 the port is quiet during these hours and the passengers numbered about a dozen.The water was clear and untroubled, the ferry's movement across its calm face created the only breeze. I was sitting facing forward, looking out across the bow. To the northeast was San Diego to the northwest the Pacific Fleet.
