USS Lexington and Our Texas Pictures

While we were in Corpus we tried to do a little site seeing.

We took a quick tour of the USS Lexington. The things that impressed us was the sheer size and how HOT it was inside. Even with the air conditioning system they had installed. We couldn't imagine how hot the ship was when it was at sea and engaged in battle. Another thing was how steep an narrow the stairs were. Hollywood makes running up and down them look so easy! (Of course, being wobbly and trying to use a cane makes it a bit more challenging). Unfortunately I didn't have the leg strength or energy to see more than we did, but we enjoyed what we did see.
