USS Midway Tour, Two Hour narrated Harbor Excursion, and Box Lunch.

Departed the Town & Country Hotel @ 0930. The Midway opens @ 10:00, with advanced tickets the group boards together with no lines. Everyone received a complimentary audio set and this allows the group to fan out to their favorite exhibits.

At noon we reboarded the bus and proceeded a short distance to enjoy a two hour narrated harbor excursion, passing by five military installations, and just before mooring, passed by the bow of the Midway for another excellent photo op.

Everyone also received a box lunch, with dessert and beverage, to enjoy at their leisure during the two hour cruise.

The group returned back to the hotel by 1530.
