Made it out


May 4

Headed to Battleship Park to see the USS ALABAMA (1942-47) and the USS Drum (submarine). The ALABAMA has been well cared for and it is honestly awesome to walk the decks of such a storied ship. (To reach Battleship Park we crossed the bay on the 7.5 mile Jubilee Parkway Bridge - an impressive span that provides a "waterside" view of Mobile Bay.)
