|The USS Yorktown|
|We were able to sit in one of the planes in the hangar |
deck of the Yorktown. Ethan is sitting in the plane.
|Poppy imagining what it would have been like!|

This area was used to feed about 70 men!
We also visited Fort Moultrie while we were there. Built in 1776, this fort saw action all the way through WWII until it was finally turned over to the National Park Service in 1960. Fort Moultrie was also the site of the beginning of the Civil War when the Confederates (Fort Moultrie) fired on Fort Sumter.

Jordan, Noah and Savannah at Fort Moultrie
|Noah on top of the giant sea turtle that |
we built! We had fun watching people's
reactions as they passed by it! One
little boy even stopped to pet it!
|Ethan on top of the turtle.|
We saw hundreds of dolphins! They would swim within 30 feet of us.
|Ethan getting buried!|

|Another on the flight deck...|
|Looking out from the hangar deck, |
we saw a dolphin swim right beside the boat!
