Neat-O I love old warships, did you go aboard? Good camouflage job on this one it would be really hard to spot.

Maybe its a ship of the desert! ;) Thanks Guy! Nice that at least one person visits my photos!

ooops - and no, didn't go aboard it. No time that trip, and I think it's only open week-ends in the winter. But through the windows it looks like there's lots of cool stuff inside.

Actually, this one is sure worth a link !

Dagnabbit warship got in the way of your setting moon shot.

LOL Marquee - funny thing is that it would have been the moonrise, and I'd been hoping to it on this trip. But clouds got in the way.

But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone, so many things I would have done.........

well, if you'd had a boat like this you could have blasted them out of the air ;D

Hey this thing's haunted! The 'Ghost Hunters' were on here trying to contact John Johnson's ghost. He died in some kind of mishap with gun#2.

Cooooool! Wish I got cable TV so I could have seen that! Hopefully I'll get myself on board someday before it is moved or they scrap it, either of which are apparently definite possibilities. The ghost ship may become a ghost itself.
