Life has been hard for the Christensen family over the last few days.
To begin with, we piled into the van and had to drive halfway across the country. We ended up just north of San Diego in Camp Pendleton, where our good friends the Cooks have kept us up late and run us ragged by dragging us to the beach and forcing us to play in the cool waters of the Pacific until our bodies ache from running repeatedly into the waves and our skin stung from sunburn.
Yesterday, we spent the day in downtown San Diego Maritime museum. through old world sailing ships including the ship used in the Movie Master and Commander, a Russian submarine with two foot circular hatchways.
