San Diego USS Midway

U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier.

Regular adult price @ $23, online price @ $22 ($1 discount), coupon from hotel @ $21 ($2 discount)

The official parking place is $10 but there are public parking at the nearest park, which is cheaper.

Some area closes earlier than other areas, so recommend to ask workers there for information.

It will take at least two hours to go through all exhibits, so better to go there early. They have good souvenirs like “Top Gun” movie. So, check it out.

Here are some photos.

San Diego Restaurant and Food

San Diego is famous for seafood, Italian in Little Italy and Mexican food in Old Town. I noticed that there are a couple of fast food Japanese restaurants like Kura Sushi and Yoshinoya. This reminded me of my childhood when I lived in Japan. Overall, I recommend seafood and authentic Mexican food because it is very close to the border – not Burrito 🙂

1. Cajun Seafood at Crab Hut – this is a chain-restraint (you can find it in Hawaii) but it tastes good.

2. Mexican Breakfast in Coronado – Coronado is a nice resort area.

3. Japanese Izakaya Restaurant, Yokohama Yakitori Koubou

4. Japanese Restaurant: Yokohama Yakitori Koubou

5. Japanese Restaurant: Kura Sushi

6. Seared Hotate with Japanese mayo, found this is the best sushi for me

7. Kura Sushi, Ordering system on iPAD mounted for Belt Conveyor sushi

8. Miso Ramen

9. Mexican Steak

10. Maine Lobster Sandwich at Liberty Public Market – this is where you can find a lot of local and organic food.

11. Yoshinoya – Japanese chain restaurant

12. Italian food at Little Italy

Up The Lazy Run 10k Race in West Linn, Oregon

Here is my monthly running event in May 2019. This was a very organized event and it was easy to follow the course. The Park is beautiful and running around Willamette River was gorgeous.

For the course, there were downhills and uphills with elevations of 200 feet, which was challenging.

For my personal experience, I think I did good overall but I should do more speed practice to run faster. I felt I can go faster but not trained enough to run at faster speed.
