I stayed at the hotel until the very last minute that I could check out.  I went to grab some lunch and hit the road.  I stopped at a Barnes & Noble to kill some time and then took a nap in my car.  Then I made the drive to San Diego.  I met up with my friend Andy (not the same Andy from my previous posts).  We were both pretty hungry so we went to a really awesome Japanese restaurant.  Andy gave me a small tour of San Diego afterwards.  I’ve been to San Diego about 4 times, but I feel as though I’ve never really seen what the city has to offer.  We went to the harbor and walked up to the USS Midway, which is an older aircraft carrier that was a flagship in Desert Storm in 1991 and decommissioned a year later after 47 years of service.   Surprisingly, I’d never been that close to an aircraft carrier that I could recall.  I can only imagine how today’s aircraft carriers just tower this one.   We also went to a hill where you could see 360 degrees in all directions.  It was so neat to see all of a city from one single location. Other than that, we just hung out and talked since we haven’t seen each other for at least 8 years.  I should have taken my camera along to dinner with me, but didn’t.  So no photos for the day.
