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.|
