USS Lexington

Day 2; Corpus Christi. Not knowing any better, I decided to make a quick tour of the floating museum known as the U.S.S. Lexington. Six hours later, the self-paced walking tour wound me back to where I had begun it. I was amazed at all the periphenalia that the ship housed (There’s a strange turn of a phrase.) It really was like a floating city. Shops, restaurants, hospital, barber, dentist, electrical plant, armory; I don’t thing anything was missing. There were also battle momentos, and peace momentos; letters, flags, cartoons, and bric-a-brac covering the sixty-odd years of her comission.
