On Labor Day, Brad and I took a trip out to Falls River, MA for a little field trip. Brad had stumbled upon Battleship Cove online (he swears he went there once as a kid, but cannot confirm nor deny it). We love touring the USS Slater in Albany, but this takes Navy ships to a whole new level! I knew he would love it & that alone made it a great day for me!
Battleship Cove is a Navy museum near Providence, RI.
We spent the entire day touring 5 different ships, including a submarine.
It's all very fascinating!
I love anchors...
An Army helicopter! We thought of Craig!! Way to go on getting your wings, Craig!
I <3 the crackerjack uniforms.
I was too short to be able to look through the binoculars.
There was an entire section in the museum on the Women of War. It was fascinating.
This was a wooden Navy ship. Brad told me it was common to be painted this way.
I loved those wooden shoes from the Philippines. They had so much detail in them!
All of the memorabilia from different countries was so neat. Most of it was from WWII
& a lot of it was gifts that sailors sent home to their family when they went to port.
There were ROOMS full of these knick knacks.
Where will we go from here?...
...Only time will tell.
