Our tour was self guided with the help of a written guide. I wish I had counted how many times we went up and down the steps.
After touring the Alabama we toured the sub USS Drum. As we are going thru the sub I wonder how the men spent months in one of these things, I know they are much larger now, but still they have to be pretty confining. My Son Rich was in the Navy for 6 years during the first Gulf War. He served on the Trident Submarine USS Alaska .
The picture on the left is the torpedo room and the one on the right is part of the engine room.
The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park has a beautiful rose garden, it happened to be blooming and I was able to get a picture of a lovely yellow rose.
After all our touring we stopped for lunch at yet another Dinners, Drive-ins, and Dives eatery. In the small town of Daphne AL, Manci Antique Club. Mr. Manci immigrated from Italy and open a small restaurant in 1924 and it has been popular every since. They serve por-boys and the best hamburgers.
The place is full of antiques, but they are not for sale. After our lunch we spent some time checking out all the junk, stuff, treasures, or what ever you want to call it.
