All Aboard!

Sunday, after going to the Alameda Flea Market for one last time, we stopped at the USS Hornet (an aircraft carrier that was used in WWII turned museum) which was close by. We boarded the ship and listened to the short introduction and then went straight up to the Island. That's the tall part that houses Primary Flight, the Captain's At Sea cabin, and the Navigation Bridge. Our tour guide worked on the sister ship to the Hornet, so he had a lot of knowledge about everything in the Island and many stories to go with it. It was an awesome tour.
