Our last vacation day was spent in a cold foggy overcast climate, we toured the famous Hotel del Coronado, The Dell, as they prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of the comedy Some Like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis, who will be speaking. Also saw some statures honoring the characters of Dr. Seuss.
The Afternoon was spent aboard The Midway, the longest used of our major aircraft carrier class, 47 years at Sea, including Four wars. Anyone serving on these floating cities is giving up a lot and living in the most cramped and difficult circumstances to get those planes where they needed to be. Met some great veterans, very inspirational.
Drove home today, over a thousand miles for the week, and over a thousand pictures which will capture the joys of the week for years to come.
