It was a bright and sunny San Diego morning when our two families headed out to USS Bonhomme Richard's Open Dock Picnic yesterday with delicious food in hand. We started off with a bus ride to USS Bonhomme Richard, a tour under the hull of the ship and walked around taking pictures for awhile before we headed over to the barge.
While at the barge, our husband's checked their offices and then took us up to the top of the barge where awaiting us were the great smelling hot dogs and cheeseburgers prepared by the Second Class Mess Association, tables where ship's merchandise were being sold and beautiful views of the San Diego Ship Yard and Coronado bridge. The hot dog and cheeseburger meals (entree, chips & drink) were delicious along side our potluck of Hawaii food for our palates to dive right into. Our two families enjoyed lumpia, potato mac salad, fried rice, malasadas, tako poke and ahi poke. By the end of our meal, we were all so full. We hung out with our husbands and our kids with their daddies for awhile and before we knew it, it was time to pack up and leave. Leftovers were left for our husband's to enjoy for dinner since they were on duty.
We are so glad that we were able to enjoy the beautiful day yesterday with USS Bonhomme Richard and with our husband's while they were on duty. We want to thank USS Bonhomme Richard for having us and for the opportunity to see the ship before it comes out of dry dock.
Here are a few pictures of how much we enjoyed our day yesterday.
