The Star of India. Let’s see how Tumblr does today.

The USS Midway in San Diego, California.  First of all, this thing is BIG.  It was impossible to get it all in one picture.  Secondly, the number of dials, cables, pipes, knobs, posts, levers, wheels, valves, etc, etc, etc was insane. 

I especially enjoyed the bulk heads, the Pratt-Whitney engines in the planes and flags on the bridge.

The Maritime Museum in San Diego.  You want ROPE?  This place has it.  Pretty amazing actually.  The signature ship is the Star of India.  I could have spent quite some time wandering around these ships.

Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, California.  This was my first opportunity to wander a cemetery in quite some time.  It didn’t disappoint.  I really enjoyed the way the headstones ran off into different directions and how they seemed to continue into the sea.  Also, this property is an odd shape.  It is very thin and long.  From some vantage points it appeared as if the headstones went for all of eternity. 

It also provided some excellent views of the city and was incredibly peaceful and quiet.
