Home at last!

I’ve finally made it home, a long drive has been completed. On the way, I saw an exit that a dear online friend might recognise:

On the way back, we stopped at the USS Alabama, here’s a photo of me with some big guns:

I’m just wore out. But, the visit to the USS Alabama was really neat. I wasn’t able to do all of the tours, they’re about 2 hours each. So, I did just one mostly. Next time I’ll finished that one and make it to the bridge and then do another tour. 

I think the thing that surprised me most of all is that the aft portion of the battle ship deck is made out of Teak wood. I didn’t realise the aft portions of battleships in that time frame was made out of wood.

I’ve posted my USS Alabama photo’s in an album (well in the process now) so you can see as well.

Happy Saturday nite
