Bless you sweeT Mamamia!
Here's a picture of our ship - Holland America Oosterdam.
And here's a picture of the rear of the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier from WWII which you can tour.
DH and I walked about a mile in the lovely cool morning air to a restaurant he read about called Richard Walker's where we feasted sumptusously. I had a cinnamon and pecan pancake, DH had a strawberry wafffle. Yum!
The city of SanDiego has sculpture all over the bayfront. In the "Greatest Generation" Park we saw a statue of the iconic sailor kissing the nurse at the end of WWII. Other sculptures along the way run the gamut from classical marble nymphs to the turkey carcas on a stick sort of abstractionism done in rusty rebar.
On the way back, we came through the Sea Village shopping center and spotted, in a pond, this happy family on an outing! Ooooo - baby duckies!
I may not be blogging from the ship because the wifi is not reliable. Pictures and more to come later!
But This has been a glorious morning!
