San Diego - Beaches & USS Midway

After a long day walking around to all the rides at Universal Studios we drove to San Diego. It's only about 100 miles and takes 1.5 h or so. San Diego was much nicer than I thought, really an awesome place to live at! Beaches, sunny and warm all year around. Went to see the USS Midway museum aircraft carrier that was used in the Vietnam war. San Diego is also one of the main naval bases in US, there were 2 other active aircraft carriers in the port.
