Southern California Trip - First Day in San Diego
We spent the day down at the harbor. First we toured the USS Midway. Bill probably enjoyed that more than Marilyn but we both had an interesting and physically challenging time. Going from deck to deck on the original ladders gave us an appreciation of how fit sailors must have been and perhaps how slender they might have been.
There were many interesting places on the ship and there are plenty of photos in the album below. Here is one from the highest point on the ship where the air boss ran everything dealing with the aircraft.
We had lunch at one of the harbor-side restaurants. Although this is the time for the "June gloom," it was pleasant enough to enjoy eating outside.
When we finished the harbor tour, we hopped back on the trolley and headed back to Old Towne where we did a little shopping and a lot of eating of delicious Mexican food. We also enjoyed watching some energetic dancing on a stage in the outdoor restaurant area. check it out below.
