Heading up the channel past the US Coast Guard base. Ahead of us a battleship museum. I have seen the ‘USS Texas’ in Houston, TX, the ‘USS New Jersey’ in Camden, NJ and in Los Angeles, Ca, it is the ‘USS Iowa’?

Kapowai berthed, the tent behind us was for a performance of Madame Butterfly so we had a free dress rehearsal and the main performance as well.
