    Default Independence Seaport Museum

    Suzanne and I went to the Independence Seaport Museum for my birthday yesterday and they had some nice models that I thought might be appreciated here.

    Don't know how I missed this Dobbs.
    They are indeed interesting.
    Thanks for posting them.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Yesterday I began a new coastline project with 7 batteries housed along its length.

    I haven't been there in years. There is a big plan for improvements to the park around the museum and a partial decking over of I-95 beginning this summer, I think.

    Was the Gazella in port?

    When I saw the first picture of Mr. Dobbs for a split second I thought it showed the Batavia shipyard in the Netherlands before I realized that it was a diorama.

    This is how Batavia shipyard looks from above - the similarities in the layout are remarkable...

    Gazella was in port, but still covered and with her fore t'gallant struck for the Winter.
