Rommel and the USS Midway
I am quite serious when I tell you that if you come to San Diego, call me and I’ll be happy to play docent for a while.
Over the years I’ve played docent on a scenic driving tour of the the San Diego metropolitan area, at the San Diego Zoo, at Safari Park, at SeaWorld, of Coronado Island, and, yesterday, the USS Midway.
Rommel came down from Oxnard. He let me know about a month in advance that he was coming, and I was only too happy to set aside time to meet a fellow WordPress blogger and spend a little time with him.
Rommel has a military ID of some sort, so he got onto the USS Midway free. He also offered to pay my $18 entrance fee and before I could say anything, the ticket booth lady was taking his money. Thanks, Rommel!
We had a great time touring the aircraft carrier, taking pictures of all the planes on deck and in the hangar. I also got pictures of the USS Carl Vinson parked across the bay at North Island Naval Station, the downtown San Diego skyline, and even the Californian, the official tall ship of the State of California which was out for a cruise of the bay.
Depending on what you want to do and where you want to go, I might also have some discount coupons for you. I’m a member of the San Diego Zoological Society (Zoo and Safari Park) and SeaWorld, so I’ll often have free passes for them. If you don’t call, it’s your loss.
Thanks, Rommel. I had a great time and hope you did, too!
