Sweet Home Sandy Eggo

Dawn broke on Friday, and I found myself back in my favorite places, San Diego.  Ginger and I are here for a special dedication of an A-6A on board the USS Midway by the Squadron Members of VA-115 “Arabs” in the name of Mike McCormick and Alan Clark, the last two Intruder Aviators killed in action during the Vietnam War.

For as solemn of an event as this sounds, it certainly affords all of the squadron mates of 115 to rejoin from the corners of the nation for a great time of comrade and remembrance.  This is a great group of folks!  Loving, caring, supportive, fun!  And the stories to hear! 

I’ll be posting more on the dedication over at Tailhook this week.  So keep your eyes there as well for the details.

As for the rest of this weekend, Ginger and I are playing tourist!  Between obligations yesterday, Ginger and I headed to probably one of the best seafood places in San Diego… Point Loma Seafood, for a great serving of Swordfish Tacos and a fresh Alaskan Halibut sandwich… mmmm… mmmmm.

Gin had some school work to finish up (no rest for the Master’s student), so I took the opportunity to walk a few miles along the embarcadero looking for a few photo ops.  Snapped a few that I’ll be sure to post shortly.

Last evening we were invited to rejoin the Arabs, for a cocktail gathering at the Se San Diego.  Again an incredible get together to share stories, jokes, remembrances.  Just being allowed to interlope among these heroic individuals is a privilege I do not take lightly.

Today, we’re off to the Zoo.  Even having lived here for a great portion of my life, I visited the zoo rarely, and the last time I was there was probably 25+ years ago, so I’m looking forward to that.

More to come…
