Did you tour her?

I would like to tour her and Texas if I ever make it down that way.

No, I had spent the biggest part of the day in the Texas Hill Country and my goal was to get down to the Gulf of Mexico and see her in the water before it got dark. It closed before I got there so I couldn't go on board.

Here's an interesting tidbit. Admiral Nimitz is from Fredericksburg Texas, which is in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. A beautiful area. The national Museum of the battle of the Pacific is located in Fredericksburg. You can go to Fredericksburg and learn about Admiral Nimitz as well as the battle of the Pacific and see displays, and then take a drive down to Corpus Christi and tour a World War II aircraft carrier that fought in the Pacific.

I expected the aircraft carrier to be a little bit bigger than what it was. Of course it looks bigger the closer you get to it. The Lexington is 220 ft shorter than the USS Nimitz.

Carriers are big, as far as ships go, but small as far as airports go.

Essex class carriers got small fast as the big cold war jets came out. Postwar they did a lot of experimentation on them with updates that really helped future carriers.

Towards the end they were more used as attack carriers with light aircraft and helicopters, kind of like modern amphibious assault ship's airwing (and the ships are about the same size)

A Nimitz class carrier is said to be able to survive 3x the damage a WWII Essex could.

Iowa state flower: the wild rose



Must be hard to grow...



I always like seeing them along roads, pretty cool wildflower.
