This week I have been touring the island with college friends. On Wednesday, they hopped aboard the "Remembrance Tour", sailing around Ford Island and stopping at the USS Arizona Memorial. Jane and I stayed behind at the boathouse to take pictures.
|Here is the commander's historic "barge" ...|
|... that has carried all the Presidents |
to the USS Arizona Memorial ...
|... except for the Bushes when the |
barge was being refurbished.
|The boathouse offers a great |
view of Ford Island ...
|... maintenance home of the SBX , |
a mobile radar atop an oil platform.
|Jane pays homage to |
the old fashioned way ...
|... of putting out a fire!|
|Anchors Aweigh, my boys. |
|Farewell to college joys,|
We sail at break of day, 'ay 'ay 'ay.
|Thou our last night ashore,|
|Until we meet once more, Here's |
wishing you a happy voyage home!
|We ventured over to Ford Island to|
the USS Oklahoma Memorial.
|Jane honors those who died |
on December 7, 1941.
|The Mighty Mo now offers |
a movie tour.
I loved that flick!
|Here's the iconic couple ...|
|... Jane cozying up to them!|
|Hello, Uncle Sam!|
|Ahoy thar, me hearties!|
