Day 9 of vacation

Kids stand next to the Sea King responsible for 5 Apollo retrievals.

Beautiful weather, but a bit chilly when the wind picks up. The USS Midway is an impressive aircraft carrier. The museum provides a headset for an informative audio tour. Very educational. The aircraft collection consists of only planes and choppers utilized on aircraft carriers. Our visit to the beach was brief, but fun. Temperatures had started dropping, so we didn't stay long. The kids got to see surfers for the first time.

San Diego harbor is beautiful. It is right next to the airport and train station. All modes of transportation going on simultaneously.
