Liberty Call: Olongapo City

It's time to hit the beach.

You walk out the gate, cross S**t River and ignore the opportunity to turn right on Gordon Ave., where the officers congregate. This puts you on the second block of Magsaysay Drive, where this 1989 travelogue begins.

You're only a block or so from the 7th Fleet Band's favored hangout, Bea's Musical Lounge. It's likely you'll stop in and see if your shipmate's are hanging out. Maybe a jam session is happening.

It's also likely you'll walk past Bea's and seek other adventures.

After all, you're on liberty in Olongapo City and the night is young.
