Battleship Cove

 USS Lionfish

While in Fall River, Massachusetts, Teague and I went to Battleship Cove.  This is a maritime museum of decommissioned WWII vessels. A must to visit if you have little boys, big boys, or a naval history buff. Visitors get to roam above and below decks, and vist the bridges of the battleship USS Massachusetts ("Big Mamie", the destroyer, USS Joseph P Kennedy, Jr, the corvette, Hiddensee, formerly of the East German Navy. There was also an exhibit of a couple of restored PT Boats. My favorite exhibit was the diesel submarine, USS Lionfish.
