Ship Shape

The USS Constitution, nicknamed Old Ironside, celebrated its 213th anniversary on October 21, 2011.  We happened to see it underway through the windows of the NE Aquarium that day.  The ship normally stays at the Navy Yard in Charlestown, MA, so seeing her moving is a special treat.

    • I have yet to do the on board tour of the USS Constitution or to go to the Museum. The ship is still an part of the U.S. Navy so Navy Reservists can request to do their annual training time on her.

      I have toured the HMS Victory in Portsmouth, England, which is 33 years older. But the Victory is dry docked if I recall correctly.
