Day 6

We headed off this morning and parked the car at Qualcomm Stadium (where the Chargers play) and got on the trolley.


We rode it down the the Santa Fe station (this is also the station Amtrak uses).


We walked a couple of blocks to the USS Midway and spent a couple of hours checking it out.






After grabbing some lunch, we headed over to the Maritime Museum where we checked out a couple of submarines (one was an old Soviet sub) and some old sailing ships.






Then we went on a harbor tour cruise for an hour…


After grabbing to dinner, we went to Petco Park to watch the Astros take on the Padres.

Here is Stephen watching Lance Berkman and Michael Bourn warm up.


The Astros won 6-3 in 10 innings. The Astros won one for us. I e-mailed Fox Sports where we were sitting and they said they would get us on. It has been reported to us that we were on TV in Houston THREE times and they mentioned my name. I set the DVR to record. Hopefully we got it.

After the game we took the trolley back to Qualcomm and drove back to out hotel. It is now 12:30 so I am going to bed.

We leave tomorrow from San Diego (on a TRAIN this time) at 3:00. I will post as much as I can during the trip.

  1. It looks like you all are having a great trip and it has seemed like a short week!!!
    Craig did you ever hear the saying “Fools names, like fools faces often appear in public places”??? A lady named Mrs Yarnell whose brother in law owned Yarnells Ice Cream said that to us one day as we were giving her a ride to the airport and we passed a Yarnells sign. I wish we had know you all were going and we would have tried to watch it!!!—hope you enjoyed it!! I guess the only good thing now is—we are headed back to the train. Stay safe and enjoy!!!! Love to all!!

  2. It was sooo cool seeing you all on TV during the game. Glad the Astros won..I gave up and went to bed with it tied in the ninth. I am enjoying all the great pictures and I know you all are having a blast! Have fun!

  3. Thanks again for sharing your trip! Someday I need to do a blog. We just got back from Yellowstone for a week and had a blast. Have a fun and safe trip back!
