July 2008: Visited Colonial Williamsburg, Bush Gardens, Bush Water Park, and the new Mariners Museum where the Monitor is being restored after being raised several years ago. Also took a harbor cruise around the Norfolk Naval Yard where many of the warships are docked for restocking and or retrofitting.
The Mariners Museum opened up the Monitor section in March 2007 after raising the Gun Turret, engine, and other artifacts off the coast of cape Hataras.
