Submarning With Mike

This evening, our buddy Mike met us in Long Beach to hang out. It's been over a year since we saw him, but it felt just like old times. Mike knew a bit about Long Beach, so he took us down to where the Queen Mary is docked and we had a most excellent walk around.

While we didn't go on the QM, we did tour the Russian Sub, Scorpion that was docked next to it. Naturally, I was impressed. Perhaps what was most remarkable with this cramped and stark boat was that it was built in the 1970's, not the late 1940's that it felt like. Russian submariners must have been tough as nails. 78 men, 3 toilets, 2 showers - you do the math.

Below are some photos from our little adventure.

Finally, I couldn't resist playing with my new found video capability on my cell phone. Here's a clip of the Long Beach area:
