San Diego…

Reached San Diego in calm seas
Warm, sunny day

Coming into port is an experience like no other

On the flight deck
Strong wind in my face from our movement

Our size and uniqueness seemingly demanding respect
Moving slowly down the channel

Navy security boats and tugs power toward us
Meet us for escort

Many Tigers will leave the ship here
Their voyage over
Some of us remain and more Tigers process on

Tone on the ship changes
Sailors preparing to go in to town ready to party for a night

A few of us off to dinner
Then, as sailors do
“Hit” a local tavern

Too much beer
But great camaraderie

Get in late
But safe and sound

(Cannot talk out of school, here
Sorry
But it was great fun,
Trust me on that)
