Museum on the Bay

Our trip to  Corpus Cristi, Texas was  full of fun.  We mainly visited the USS Lexington or the Museum by the Bay as it is popularly known as.  It's nice that they turn this old military ship into a tourist attraction.  People can learn   things about the military.

I wish that we could have more time to spend a day or two so we could have explored  it more but we were only there for certain hours as it was a bit far from San Antonio, Texas.
Our family friend is  lucky that they live  where they can just drive and see  it.
Despite the time constraints, we managed to have fun and learn a lot of things about the  military history.  The kids got to enjoy swimming in the ocean and it  was  an adventure worth remembering with the Dias Family.  Little by little, I will be  posting photos, I just can't do it  right away as I have so many things going on whew.

It's a great idea they turned this into a tourist attraction. They can be known for this and a lot of people could come and visit. I hope I get to visit that too, someday. Hehe.

Looks like all of you had fun! :)

Aside from its educational and Historical value , visiting military museum or any museum is a very nice outdoor activity.

This museum is unique! And I really value the importance of history as it is the one who molded us to what we are today. :)

Kids love museum. With planes and military stuff, your boy must have enjoyed your visit more than anyone else.

I'd love to have my picture taken beside the 50 caliber gun and the large propeller! Wohooo! It's super cool to be on a boat!

This reminds me of Corregidor here in the Philippines. Kids and adults will definitely learn a lot about military.
