This sticking up between the Midway and a tribute to Bob Hope and USO. Guess their shoe sizes, get a different view of the Midway, it takes just a few minutes, or can be seebn from upper floors of many hotels.

We visited during the night after a nice walk around the coast. The lights are not great but the naval ship behind it produces a different and interesting background.
