As we headed up the mighty Mississippi the other day towards New Orleans,
I stepped outside to take a few pictures.
Let me tell you, that is one long river. We traveled north from the Gulf of Mexico for 18 hours
before we got to a point that in any way resembled the fact that humans might actually live here.
18 hours of steady steaming, full ahead, and we only made it to New Orleans.
If you look at a map, New Orleans is basically on the southern tip of this worlds 4th largest river.
So after traveling 18 hours, we were at the beginning. Do you get where I'm coming from?
The other end of the river is in Minnesota somewhere!
Can you tell the greatness of this river is blowing me away right now? ( I need to get home.)
Anyway, we came upon this strange looking Navy ship.
Octagon shaped stacks and a stern deck that opened to the sea.
Definitely a specialty ship of some kind.
I have no idea what it might be for,
