pearl harbor

we only went to the uss arizona memorial in pearl harbor. we didn't tour the submarine or the battleship...mainly because i've been to the ones in mobile several times and wanted to spend that time on the beach.

i will say that it was a pretty emotional experience. well, not so emotional that i cried and cried. it was kind of somber like when going down to ground zero in nyc.



in the area before you get on the boat to go to the memorial, they had this mural and a list of all the survivors. it must have been something to have survived it.












it was a pretty cloudy and windy day...so, all of the pictures are a little dark.


















the list with all the names...









several pictures of the wreckage...






























it was nice to see a little piece of history.
