The Avenger

Louisiana, Road Trip, States

 Six of us ventured out in search of breakfast and absolutely scored at Mother’s. Afterwards Laura & Mason and the two of us headed to The National World War II Museum. For hours we immersed ourselves in history of this global conflict from many different angles. Of special interest to Laura was the section on the contributions of the Merchant Marine. Karen appreciated the display of the Grumman TBM Avenger, the plane in which  her father trained in preparation for the war in the Pacific as part of the Navy Air Corps. We finished the visit by viewing “Beyond All Boundaries” for an excellent overview. It’s amazing how much this museum has expanded and improved since we first visited in July 2004!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
