This is the part of the cruise that I was waiting for.
In this picture alone, I think there are more warships than many countries have ships.
Anyone who follows this blog for a long time knows that I love ships. While I like the ships of the Great Lakes, I love the ships of the Navy. Ever since I was little, I would read about the exploits of our Navy. So it was pretty cool to see a bunch of Navy ships.
It was cooler to look up the people behind the names of some of our ships. This is a reminder that the hardware we have is nice but it still comes down to the people that man it.
I would like to take another trip to Norfolk at some point. There is so much that I missed.
