Judy and Nickie @ the USS Alabama
The USS Drum, now parked on dry land at the same Park is open to the public. Go ahead, climb down to see how claustrophobic life would be aboard a submarine. Every inch of space is taken up: I've never seen such an array of gears, gadgets and gizmos (above). Also torpedoes. And bunks inches away from torpedoes - imagine! These guys could neither bathe nor do laundry while submerged. Double pee-yew. I was happy to come topside and breathe in a lungful of fresh air! We all were. And it was a glorious, sunny, spring-is-in-the-air kind of day.
It must take two or three days to see everything at Battleship Park, but we ran out of time. It was fun to visit a hometown attraction with a new friend - what a nice day!
