Our Guide, Carter, was so well informed and interesting. You could tell she loved what she was doing. One of the stops were in Smith's Union Bar. This bar was featured in the new movie "Midway" exciting to know that we were in that very same bar. Oh the history!

We stepped back into time. Carter, our guide was amazing. She was so animated, well researched and engaging. We laughed, blushed and heard of the sailor life during WWII. Not for children!
