Vacation Day 11: USS Midway and Mission Beach

Today we left our home in Anaheim and headed for our new home in San Diego, which as you all know is german for "a whale's vagina".  Yes, I have the sudden urge to watch Anchorman.

Our first San Diegan tourist destination was the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier turned museum.  There were lots of airplanes, some of which you could sit in.  We even got to eat lunch on the hanger deck.  Adam was totally geeking out.  Next to the aircraft carrier was a park with a giant statue of a sailor french-kissing a nurse.  Awesome!

Next we went to Mission Beach.  We didn't go swimming, though a lot of people there were.  It was kinda cold and, since we went to Long Beach yesterday, we weren't that desperate for a swim.  We walked along the walkway for a bit, then crossed the road to a bay where the water was much calmer.  We waded in the water there and collected a few small sea shells.

The internet at our new hotel doesn't seem very reliable, and William doesn't have a seperate room this time, hopefully this won't affect my blogging.  Also, the shower head here is about two inches too low for me to stand under.  Now I know how Adam feels whenever he takes a shower.

Sounds like you're having a fabulous time, Jen, and blogging too. Impressive! There's nothing like a beach to entertain young kids. Hope the rest of your holiday is perfect.
