Our visit to the USS Wisconsin was very informative, the tour was given by a former Petty Officer and the stories these guys told were great. We paid for the deluxe tour and were in the tactical room and heard what a naval engagement would sound like. I could not imagine having to work in the crowded, dark, claustrophobic conditions in that room.
I thought I had it bad on Cat's-Paw IV, the amount of room I have to store my clothes, the poor enlisted men just get a space under their bunks and then a small locker to hang up their dress uniforms. I imagine that privacy was a closely guarded commodity on a war ship!!
Yesterday was Carole's birthday and we spent the day strolling around historic Norfolk admiring the beautiful architecture.
We will stay at the marina until Friday and then make our way slowly south so as not violate our insurance policy which does not want us to pass Cape Hatteras until Dec. 1, when the threat of hurricanes in thought to be over.
