USS Turner Joy – Bremerton, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 17 miles from Fort Casey State Park to Oak Harbor, Washington. The motorhome is parked on Dock Street near the very friendly American Legion Post #129. They offered to let me park in the parking lot, but for a number I reasons I preferred parking here.

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about a month.)

 

 

Today’s subject…

A couple of weeks ago I was in Bremerton, Washington. Among the things I saw there was the USS Turner Joy. I’ve been aboard several destroyers in my time and so I passed on the $14.00 admission fee.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
