The world around me..... my town part 2

Yesterday's post was rather long so I thought I would wait until today to show a few more photos from my trip to the Mariners Museum. As I mentioned they had a lot of information on the Monitor itself, but also showed a lot of history of ships in general. One of the more interesting areas was on the Titanic.

They not only had displays of things like this china from the ship itself




They also had some information on some of the passengers that were on board like this couple.






They even had a life boat (not a real one of course) to show us what it must have been like to row away.



I really enjoyed learning so many things.
The museum also talked about modern ship building and had some displays of old fishing lines and crab traps. We had fun with a ships wheel and enjoyed our day.


Thanks for coming along with me as I showed you The world around me...

Neat Patty... I love YOUR pictures.. You look like such a neat person to be around, all full of LIFE... Just my type of person!!!

We'd love that Mariners Museum.. George especially loves seeing the Tall Ships. He saw them in Norfolk in 2000. I want him to take me to see them sometime.

Hugs,
Betsy

This just looks like a really cool place to go and check out. The things from the Titantic had to be incredibly fascinating to see.

I love the pictures of you in the rowboat and behind the wheel - it looks like you were having a great time!
