Yorktown at Sunrise Pt 2

June 6, 2009

We continue with pictures taken on Friday’s visit to the Patriot’s Point Naval Museum in Charleston Harbor, with a tour in the bowls of the 36,000 ton USS Yorktown. We viewed numerous historic artifacts, displays, and some well-put together ship models that yours truly would love to have!
