Battleship, Submarine, and some flying 'Angels'.

Wednesday we headed out to Mobile, Alabama to see the Battleship USS Drum.

It was enormous.

The self guided tour was very interesting and fun.

Captain's office from back in the day.

Looking through the gun sight.......... Hmmmm, doesn't look too accurate.

Went through a submarine. Holy crap....... Tight quarters!!! I felt seasick even though the vessel was on land.

This submarine walkway reminds me of our Airstream....... Narrow and shiny.

This gentleman is a retired naval officer. He worked on a submarine like this one...... Lots of stories.

Friday we headed into Pensacola to see the Blue Angels....... Growing up, I always thought a "Blue Angel" was something quite different. hee hee

I could never jump out of a plane.

Or do this......... could you?

The stands were crowded so we just sat back and watched the show.

So amazing to watch.

The concentration and skill required for this.......... hard to fathom.

Really enjoyed the whole experience (Andrew shot the air show photographs).

Tomorrow we pack up and head off to New Orleans....... love that place. It's Andrew's birthday on Tuesday so we are celebrating both our birthdays at "Stella!". We ate here a few years ago and it was the best meal I have ever had in my life.

Gotta Run...... so I can eat everything I want on Tuesday.
