Break out the big guns: On Sunday we journeyed to nearby Richmond, CA (north of Oakland/Berkeley) to visit the USS Iowa, a famous battleship (or “battle boat,” as Finn put it) of World War II. We also checked out the cargo ship SS Red Oak Victory moored (and long ago built) nearby. Though Finn quickly tired of the cold wind, Salty Hen really enjoyed swinging his mallet aboard that freighter. (A bright career as a “deck ape” may await!)
Here’s our gallery o’ pics from the day.
