Sunday Morning ! GOOD MORNING TEXAS ! Isn't this a great way to start the day ? We enjoyed our 1st cup of coffee, looking out the "dining room" window, before hooking up and heading south to Harlingen Texas. We FINALLY met up with Bud and Carol, our dear friends from Lambertville, Mich. We will be at the Palm Court with them till Jan 3rd when we will go wandering again for a bit.
FRIDAY - Our campground is right out around the end of the long beach in the background. We rode our bikes on the big sidewalk that goes between the resorts and the USS Lexington. What a huge ship! Watched a really good movie about jet fighter pilots before we went up and down all the stairs/ ladders, saw all the airplanes, the Pearl Harbor display and all the rest. I think H was most impressed with the engine rooms and how they communicated from the bridge.
Yes ! I have yet another patch for my very croweded blue jacket !
Harry did not want to go up in the bridge part of the tour but after a bit of fussing , he relented and climbed up those steep DARK stairs. He now says he's glad he did! What a view! Ofcourse, it was also neat sitting in the captain's chair and doing some imagining. The trick to climbing back down those steep dark stairs - - - do them backwards - just like going down a ladder. MUCH easier!
