Firstly, I must apologise for being so slow in adding another post. I’ve got so much to write about but juggling two young children makes it hard to get the time!
Secondly I’d like to tell you about the last fun thing we did whilst Richard’s parents were here. We went to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. The Intrepid is an aircraft carrier which was used in World War 2, the Vietnam War and the Cold War. Now it sits on a pier on the Hudson River and is used as a museum.
One of the first things you see when you enter the Intrepid is a Lego scale replica made of approximately 250,000 Lego blocks. It’s pretty amazing to look at!
Inside the Intrepid they have all sorts of different machinery and information to give you an idea of what life was like on the Intrepid and how it was used before it was de-commissioned.
It was pretty interesting to look at the different decks and check out the machinery, living areas, dining areas and so on.
On the deck there are 27 authentically restored air craft. It’s pretty interesting to see all the different types. I remember how much Tate enjoyed looking at all the ones with stars on them when we visited over the New Year. This time he was more interested in running up and down the deck and hanging off the railings!
