Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge (Day Four): USS Alabama Battleship

Thanks to Helen from HHC BLOG (http://helenchen.ws/) who invited me to participate the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. If you don’t know her blog, go check it out…

The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

Today, I would like to invite antilandscaper (http://theantilandscaper.org/) to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.  If you have not seen his blog, please go and check the cool pictures and nice stories…

Here is my Forth story & photos…

I wanted to go on a road trip for a while and it never seemed to be a good time, but on New Year’s everyone was busy doing their own thing and so my mom and I decided to spend New Year’s in Destin, FL.

Wow! What a drive… Ten hours and Destin is still in Florida. Since we were already at the tip and close to Alabama, we drove into Alabama to see the Bellingarth Gardens and Home, but on the way back, we happen to come across the USS Alabama and we had to stop to see and read up on a little bit of our history…

USS Alabama (BB-60), a South Dakota-class battleship, was the sixth ship of the United States Navy named after the US state of Alabama. Alabama was commissioned in 1942 and served in World War II in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. She was retired in 1962. In 1964, Alabama was taken to Mobile Bay and opened as a museum ship the following year. The ship was added to the National Historic Landmark registry in 1986.

Great sight to see…
