USS Midway, San Diego

Day 18

Today we gathered our bearings. After having an amazing breakfast prepared by our generous hostess, Debbi (she truly spoiled us and made us feel like part of the family), we took the 45min drive to San Diego. Here we boarded the USS Midway. The Midway is a decommissioned aircraft carrier that has been turned into a museum. It was fascinating. Alongside there is a statue paying tribute to freedom based on a famous photo taken at the end of WW2.

There is also a cool series of sculpture dedicated to Bob Hope. He is standing performing a stand-up routine to the troops. There is a recording of his act playing. It was cool.IMG_2171
