Day 4

Posted by on June 29, 2010

The day started early cause my iPhone sitting next to my bed kept vibrating. Finally I grabbed to look at it and it was vibrating every time someone wished me a happy birthday on Facebook. Thanks everyone! Course, the next time I am on the West coast on my birthday, could I request everyone to wait till 8:00 Pacific?

We headed out to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Command Museum. Was a small Marine Corps history museum. I am a World War II history buff so I love military museums. My Dad, having been in the Marines, also gave it special meaning to me.

They invited us to be in the first group of visitors to try out their new 3D and motion movie theater. It was cool. The seats moved, it blew air in your face, had some tube that would flop around your legs to feel like you were hitting things and also sprayed a bit of water in your face. It is not opened to the public yet but should be very soon.

After that, we went to the hotel for a little and then off to eat Mexican food with the Mazos who are friends from Harding.

This was mostly an indoor day. It will be our only one.

More tomorrow.
