Set out this morning to be tourists and chose the USS Lexington, one of only 2 remaining WWII aircraft carriers in existence. Started with a tour guide names Chuck who was a regular encyclopedia of information about the ‘Lex” and naval flight. We then went up to the bridge and down to the crew quarters, flight deck, hangar deck and below decks (crew quarters, engine room, etc.). Absolutely incredible piece of engineering!
Finished the day watching “The Martian” (good movie!), then dinner at a nice little Mexican restaurant here in Portland. Tomorrow we are definitely going to be in Mercedes. We are both ready to be ‘home’ for awhile.
