U.S.S Intrepid

Our memorial day weekend is off to a great start! We met up with my coworker (and friend!) and her husband and toured the U.S.S. Intrepid. This was Superman and my first time on an aircraft carrier.

I know it's said that all military men are history buffs. But Superman takes it to a whole new level. In fact, we joke that Superman has graduated early to the status where he can put the "Iraqi Vet" trucker cap, complete with a boatload of pins, and just hang at the VFW with all the good ol' boys trading more war stories than the day is long.
Of course Superman knew all you never wanted to know about these planes. All Superman needed was some dress whites and he could've pulled off  being a tour guide for sure.

Besides the interesting history, we had some majestic views of the Apple overlooking the Intrepid. Absolutely stunning.
