Old Ironsides

Also in Boston, we toured the worlds oldest commissioned ship (there is actually a ship older, but it's in permanent dry dock, and it's not in the USA), which still sails about 4 times a year. Nicknamed "Old Ironsides," because the wood was so think that cannon balls would bounce of the sides without doing any damage. It's actual name is the USS Constitution, and we got to go inside, plus explore one of the best museums that we have been to on this whole trip...All about the ship, and the museum had a great interactive kids exhibit. They learned all about being a sailor; what they ate, wore, how they slept, and worked on the ship, it was a very wonderful museum. You can see how much it inspired Bubber by his sweet karate moves!
