We took a 2-hour tour of San Diego harbor today. It was a great day to be on the water with temps in the upper 70's and clear skys. Most of what we saw was the best the US Navy has to offer. After the cruise we strolled over to the park next to the Midway to see "The Kiss" statue of the Alfred Eisenstaedt picture from VJ Day in Times Square and a memorial to Bob Hope's career of entertaining the troops. Represented in the memorial were troops from all era's and services.

At the exit from the park Sue found one of those mime's that stand motionless for hours awaiting someone to drop money in their bucket. Sue gave the guy a buck and he danced for her, shook her hand, and posed for a picture. He was pretty good.

To top off the day we went to an Italian Restaurant in Lemon Grove and after dinner we visited "The World's largest Lemon", and other roadside attraction.

Sue is heading home tomorrow morning. Sigh.
