Visiting a US Coast Guard Ship

Living on a ship gives us the privilege sometimes to visit other ships that dock in the same harbor. Obviously it's not always a huge turn on, but last week I got invited to tour one of the US Coast Guard ships and it didn't take me long to decide. :)

Here are some shots, because they graciously allowed me (YAY!!!!!!) to take pictures. Enjoy!

The "Big Gun" was the main attraction for me at least.
The guys were more fascinated by the inside of the ship.
Crew mess and recreational area.
On the Bridge I sat in the Captain's chair. I looked around and
on my right was a sign hidden well among all the devices that told me
why it was indeed MY CHAIR! (see below)

Yes, it says "Press Release"! :) That is MY JOB after all :)))

Steep steps and very confined spaces...

This is one of their sleeping quarters. 18 men with bunk beds of 3!!!

The USCG living quarters make the AFM look very luxurious! :-) I enjoy reading your blog!
