U.S.S. Jerimiah O'Brien

After Alcatraz we had a great lunch of crab at Fog Harbor.  Don't mind Darren refusing to smile.

After eating, we headed over to the U.S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien, a Liberty Ship used during World War II.

Liz demonstrating the ships "big guns."

The tour even allowed us to go down into the engine.  I always knew the engines on these enormous ships would be huge, but I wasn't expecting it to be 4 stories tall and equally as wide and deep.  Pictures couldn't accurately show the vastness of the engine room, so I just got this picture of the ship's throttle.
