USS Wisconsin, Nauticus, Norfolk, Virginia, USA

Norfolk, Virginia is home to the world’s largest naval base and its history lies in being a strategic military and transportation site. This is the USS Wisconsin – the second Navy ship to be named after the state of Wisconsin. Built in Philadelphia, the ship was launched on December 7, 1943. She has served during World War II, the Korean War and Operation Desert Storm and is now on display at Nauticus, the National Maritime Center. As we walked along the Cannonball route through Norfolk after breakfast, we passed by this massive ship. The moon can still be seen faintly in the sky as well. The streets of Norfolk are lined with cute houses and apartments, along with buildings built years and years ago – a true mixture of old and new.
