We had decided to eat lunch there since our cupboards were bare (wink) and it would save time so we requested a table at the Cubi Bar Cafe. Its interior layout and decor duplicates a famous Officers' Club that was located in the Philippines. There were plaques all over the place that commemorated different squadrons. The food was decent and not too expensive. The menu was mostly soups and sandwiches. The most memorable part was an after meal "mint" that wasn't mint at all, but key lime pie flavor hard candy. It was very yummy.
There was so much to see at the museum that even though we were there for over four hours. I felt like I was walking around in a daze most of the time. Plus supervising Spence and Sky's explorations is somewhat distracting to my own learning at times. Here are some of the highlights.

|Such a ham...|
|We are here on the off season so we didn't get to see the Blue Angels practice.|
We read that they are available to watch almost every Tuesday and Thursday morning
between April and November.
