Friday Field Trip: Disney on the USS North Carolina

Recently my family visited Wilmington for the day.  While there, we decided to take a quick tour of the Battleship U.S.S. North Carolina.  You don't get to read too many museum signs when trying to keep two little girls safe on a ship built for war and not for kids, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a touch of Disney on the ship.

The ship serves as the state's World War II memorial and even on a quick walk-through was really interesting.  Here's a link to the ship's history and some impressive stats.  I'm always thankful for our military members and their families but this certainly brought home the sacrifice of these brave folks.

Not bad for an iPhone camera.

The ship needed a little dose of cute.

I couldn't get over the size of the guns.  They could shoot a target many miles away.

If Tink's driving this ship, we are in big trouble.

True but I'm more frightened of the people for whom this sign was written.
