The crew has finished lunch. The watch is keeping an eye on contacts entering and leaving San Diego Bay.
Last night we headed out off Ssn Pedro with a full, orange moon. I had the 2100 to 2400 watch. My third time at the helm was very improved and I was happy to have only one course excursion of minor note.
The watch is calling out a tall ship ahead and hands on deck are trying to determine which she is.
We have a lot to update you on including many pictures. One quick note - from what I experienced HMS Surprise was the star of the LA FOS show. We had longer lines and guests came almost around the clock to see our ship. I am very proud of our crew for the passion, courtesy and enthusiasm they showed - on deck and ashore.
Time to man lines on the Dog Pound -more soon.
