I was worried it would be pretty cheesy, but this ended up being a really unique experience. We got to climb deep into the ship, and experienced the day to day living of soldiers (sailors?) on the ship. I learned that it must have been hot and sweaty at all times, and that there was no privacy or comfy bunks to return to at the end of a long day. It really makes you appreciate what our grandfather's generation did to protect our freedom. If you're ever in the area, it's a site I'd recommend visiting!

|Obviously, I pose in the kitchen.|
|Bunks stacked four high... not my ideal living situation!|
|The view towards the front of the ship.|
|I could totally handle one of these guns, right?|
