Last weekend Dad and I went to a behind the scenes tour at the Midway, open only for museum members. It was a lot of fun, starting out with coffee and pastries since we had to get there so early. We were able to see 6 areas normally closed off to the public - fire room, engine room, arresting gear room, aft bake shop, damage control central, and I can't remember the last area.

We still had some paid parking time after the tour, so walked around a bit.

|San Diego tuna fleet - these guys have a lot of history and were drafted during WWII|
|The Kiss - its actually erected now. There was a ceremony this morning|
Dinner the night this happened (Wed) was seared pork chops with sauteed apples and a Calvados pan sauce.
