Our homeschool group went on a field trip to the U.S.S. Yorktown.
If you know me, you know that I am very much afraid of bridges over water.
(It's strange, I'm not afraid of water and I'm not
afraid of heights, but put them together & it's scary.)
Thankfully, the family we were following took another way & we only
went over the "small" bridge. It wasn't very small.
The U.S.S. Yorktown was an 888 foot aircraft carrier.
It served in WWII, Korean War & Vietnam War.
We had a lot of fun spending time with friends
Our tour guide was wonderful. We learned that if you
saw 1/2 Japanese flag that it meant that 2 fighter planes shot
a Japanese plane down & they shared the victory.

The USS Clamagore Torpedo Submarine was Collin's favorite to tour.
|These halls were so small. The men that fought on this sub had to be fit.|
|This is one of the door ways. Collin couldn't even stand up.|

girl talking about how cool it would be to see it blow
up a ship. Oh my!
