Dh's b-day and a trip on the USCGC Bertholf

Today was Dh's b-day, and we had the rare opportunity to tour a US Coast Guard Cutter that is docked here. This is a big ship, with big guns! The crew was awesome. A got to "steer" the boat. The engines were off of course LOL. No pics were allowed inside the boat, but on the decks we were free to snap away. And the crew snapped some for us as well. A dreary day here, but lots of fun.

Let me say, this ship is amazing, and the electronics on the bridge were beyond belief. It was neat to hear the stories of the boat and the crew. Wonderful opportunity. Didn't seem that many in the community took advantage of the tour, but I just stumbled across it yesterday and am thankful.
