Have you ever had the chance to take a tour of a real Navy ship?
It was so impressive!!
It was Navy Days and we took advantage of all the Navy ships stationed in LA Harbor.
I know this picture is hard to see, but it was so beautiful to watch. Every Navy person, retired or active, stopped what they were doing to salute the flag as she was being raised. I admit it. I choked up. I loved seeing this elderly vet in front of me turn and raise his hand to honor our precious flag.
As the sun broke through the clouds a little bit later I got a picture of the USS Iowa. She is quite a ship! We did not check her out though. That will have to be a field trip for a different day!
Here was the tour we went on. The USS Anchorage.
She is HUGE!!!
The view from the back.
When/if Jr joins he will have a lovely sleeping area like this.
Hopefully he will never have to see this, the hospital area. They do have more room though…
Since you could check them out, they did!
They let the boys check out their rides too.
I don’t think we will ever forget this experience!
Here are a few more pictures of the USS Anchorage.
Our family appreciates you and all your sacrifices you make to keep us free.
May your lives be blessed!
Thank you for sharing our little adventure with us!
Have a blessed day my friend!
