We got a chance to visit Pearl Harbour today, and visit the other side of the Hiroshima story. As you’d imagine lots of military presence in the area and lots of military hardware on display. We took a tour around the Bowfin. Launched a year after the terrible attack on Pearl Harbour, the Bowfin earned the title “Pearl Harbour Avenger”

Worse place to stand when the ship dives

We didn’t make it to the museum but the kids did get to open oysters and find pearls
