Great Fishing and Baseball…Terrible Public Transport Experience, Day 3, San Diego

21 May

 

May 20, 2017, Saturday

The weather was spectacular out on the pier in the morning.  Ten MPH breeze with a clear blue skies and 75 temperature.  No fish but what a great two hours surrounded by ocean and perfect weather.  PS. Not a fish to be had.

Had a quiet mid day and even a nap.  We then had a uneventful ride on the San Diego Transportation System to the the Padres stadium for $1.50 each way for seniors($2.50 for the rest of the riders).  The Padres are a terrible team, worst in all of baseball but the stadium and food are good. 

Where things went wrong was the ride home. 

20170520_200417Someone forgot there was a Padres game with 25,000 people many who rode the public transportation to the game.  The train came 40 minutes late to pick up the riders. The crush of riders was so great that even handicapped people had no seats.  The worst was the drunks and stoners who were so loud and used obscene language that people were not feeling safe and the many children on the train were wide-eyed.  That was two straight occurrences of this kind of activity I have experiences on the public transportation in San Diego. 

I must say that it is as bad or worse than New York City underground. European public transport much better.  One of the few complaints I have about San Diego. 

Overall a great day and as often happen, traveling reminds you how nice your home is.
