    At Disneyland they cut short the fireworks after about 2 minutes due to "high air speeds at altitude". Oh well, at least the bus back to the hotel arrived quickly and had room for us to get on board.

    We drove down to San Diego today and saw the Midway. It was so interesting we missed lunch and figured at 3pm we didn't have time or inclination to move onto the Maritime Museum proper. Perhaps we'll shuffle the schedule to try and accommodate it Wednesday after the zoo though it would mean dropping Hearst Castle in order to make our pre-booked Alcatraz tour. Alex is very fond of the idea of seeing the "pirate ship".

    Off to Seaworld tomorrow after a quick detour to Mount Helix for a view of the area. A local in Denny's came over and recommended it during dinner. Speaking of Denny's, we had our first ever meal in Denny's and it was pretty nice. We are however getting pretty sick of eating out and having meals with fries every night.

    Anyway I present the Midway snapshots.

    Thanks for all the photos DPR, we can enjoy your holiday just as much as you but without all the hassle!

    It would be a pity to miss Hearst Castle, as it's unique and I don't think there'll ever be another collection of buildings like it. Even the kids will enjoy it! Here's a taster:

    ... Or aerial photographer?

    Never operated with the Midway, but sailed with (and was briefly aboard) the USS Ranger in Vietnam and the USS Hornet as part of the Apollo 11 recovery team (USS Goldsborough DDG20). Curiously, one of our relief ships (in VN) was the HMAS Perth (II) D38.

    Wonderful photos. Especially the shot with the catapult launch captain.

    Was Hearst Castle used as a scene in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Last Action Hero?

    No idea -- but it was the model for Orson Wells' Citizen Kane.

    Today was Sea World and Maritime Museum, photo's to come tomorrow as I've taken too long booking rooms tonight and have no energy left to post photo's, perhaps tomorrow night. Either that or it's the start of the end of nightly processing.

    Anyway room booked ready for Universal Studio's, stars walk and Mulholland Drive day after tomorrow.

    Tomorrow itself is San Diego Zoo and then drive to Hollywood.
