When we saw this yacht we were very excited!
Then we were told that wasn't our yacht. This was.
It would've looked really great if it hadn't been parked next to the other one. It was nice enough but not really what I was thinking when "they" said "luxury yacht". We had drinks & ate a little.
We weren't really impressed with the shrimp. See how small? Definitely not what we're usd to. It looks like it was probably shrimp out of a can. I guess we shouldn't complain considering that may be the only kind of shrimp we get if they don't get the oil spill under control.
This is the USS Midway. It's a Navy aircraft carrier. It's available to tour but I passed on that.
I have a story about this. When I was like 4, my daddy brought me to the movies & what did we see?? Midway! Charlton Heston starred in it & it was something like a 4 hr. movie. I sat through the entire thing. What a perfect child I was!!
Here's Lydia & I.
After the cruise we walked through the Gaslamp Quarter. Like Lydia said, "it's a lot like Bourbon Street without all the strip clubs". It's also much much cleaner!!
Sunday morning we went to Seaport Village. This is a little area full of shops & restaurants. It's on the bay & is a really cute area. Lydia & I walked around for awhile & then she headed over to the conference. I stayed & hung out.
I've always loved watching ducks. I don't know what it is but they're just fun. See that turtle in the middle picture? Well, I took a few pictures of it & I walked by again later & it was in the same spot & that's when I realized Mr. Turtle wasn't real. Real ducks but a fake turtle? Go figure.
More to come.
