...THE ODYSSEY Philippine's largest city. Three days later, the LONG BEACH lifted her anchor with regret and set sail for Subic Bay, LONG BEACH remained in Subic for two weeks, with part of that period spent on minor maintenance and upkeep. The crew was anxious to be off when the mooring lines were slipped and LONG BEACH glided out of the harbor and pointed her bow towards the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. S Hong Kong was to be the last port o'call before returning to the Gulf, and promised the most rewarding liberty we had yet encountered. Tours were very popular, but many LONG BEACH men preferred to strike out on their own. The native-supplied liberty boats, called walla-wallas, kept up their frantic scurrying to and from, desperately trying to keep up with the ever increasing numbers of LONG BEACH sailors anxious tohitthe beach. The LONG BEACH was never again to visit Hong Kong, but she made several return trips to Subic Bay. With April came several changes aboard LONG BEACH. Probably the most noticeable was the change of weather. With Spring finally arrived, the weather improved immenseley. We returned to the Gulf to find most of the fog and low temperatures replaced by sun and warmth--sunglass sales picked up at the ship's store and the air conditioning system was checked for possible improvements and renovations. April also saw the Executive Officer, Commander Smith, relievedbyCommanderJ.D.Watkirigs, USN, Com- mander Smith had served as Executive officer since April 1966. 91,5 i Q , ,,..k Y gl. f Wifi mfriii we iki,,,,., g.,yI"72e 74 543 i !.wf'77i-3 fsii,t-if! Masses is as 1.224.652 Probably the most spectacular highlight of the entire WESTPAC cruise was the LONG BEACH's April visit to Australia, After crossing the Equator in mid-April, with the traditional Shell back ceremony still fresh in their memories, LONG BEACH sailors descended upon the beautiful town of Sydney. After seven days liberty in Australia's largest city, LONG BEACH onceagain returned to station. Time spent on station seemed to pass much faster than the days in port. We had so much work to do in the Gulf, that we fell into a rigid routine, rarely broken, which made one day seem exactly like the last. This routine saved us from boredom and restlessness, but didn't eliminate the crew's eager anticipation of our next port call. One pleasant aspect of our time on station bore a direct result on our pocketbooks and purchases. We drew seven months Hazardous Duty pay, which admirably in- creased our paydays and our bank accounts. Tape re- corders were fashionable, as were record players, radios and jewelry, and all were direct result of the wealth offered by duty in the Gulf. And finally came summer, and with it the end of LONG BEACH's first tour of duty in WESTPAC. She had seen thousands of miles of ocean, interspersed with port calls, where her men stopped to look, relax, and enjoy themselves. She had experienced a variety of new sensations, but probably the most 'rewarding of all, was pulling back into her homeport amidst the cheers and cries of her loved ones.
