June 19th ..a flagship 

Hubby had business meetings to go to in Cleveland ,Ohio. I had the honor of going along to enjoy ride,also see Cleveland. I must say the temperatures were different than what I am use too! We left Ga with temps in the 90’s and arrived up there to temps in the low 50’s. I had on sandals and a light cotton dress on.. ” I liked to froze” ! It did warm up a little on the last day of our stay,much to my delight!😄

We did some strolling around after Hubby got out of his meetings. We were able to see Lake Erie from the hotel window,so we went down to the lake to enjoy the water ,much to our delight there was a old carrier ship to tour!


So take a stroll with us and enjoy this wonderful vessel!


A neat display 



Then on to see around the ship on the inside…


Windlass room, sorry for the blurry photo .. My iPhone doesn’t do well in darker rooms.


Up a small stair case..into a guest sitting room.


Up another stairs to a larger lounge 


Ever wonder what sailors read?


This was one of the small libraries on broad. Then on to sailors quarters..

    What a great post. We love different kinds of boats, small and big, but especially Tall ships. In Finland, we have huge amount of lakes and it is natural that different kind of cruises are popular.

    I love the variety of your photos to present that ship. They gave excellent idea about it. Thank You.

    What a wonderful museum–such detail of how life must’ve been aboard ship. The public spaces are really quite lovely, aren’t they? The only time I’ve been to Cleveland was to take a bunch college freshmen to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . . .

      We walked right by the Rock and roll place…we aren’t into that kind of music so decided not to pay to visit the museum . There was a science museum also but was more for little children.

        My husband was an engineer officer in the merchant navy and he used to have lovely quarters, when he went deep sea. Not that I ever went away with him, I could have but I had a good job, that I enjoyed. But some of the ships have lovely interiors and as they would be away sometimes for months on end, it was nice for the crew 🙂
