Red British-themed double decker bus greeting Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip as they arrived in San Diego on the Royal Yacht Britannia for their 10-day West Coast tour in 1983, which was hosted by President Ronald Reagan. Camelot Inn was a British pub and restaurant in San Marcos, now Churchill's Pub and Grille. The visit was dubbed 'The Scuba Tour' because of the almost constant rain and included San Diego, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Sierra Madre, Duarte, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Sacramento, Stanford, Palo Alto, Yosemite, and Seattle.
