Pearl Harbour!

WOW!.. What an Experience and a piece of History i have visited.

So many photos, 485 i took at this place...So Much to take in.
First of all when we arrived we had to wait an hour and a half to take the memorial tour which consisted of a short film about Pearl Harbour and then a boat tour to the memorial. I learnt alot about this in History back in year 9 & 10, some time ago. But this was an awesome experience to regain knowledge from.

Many pics below, everything is self explanitary so enjoy!.

It's DANGEROUS to give the girls the hands of fire power. Who knows what damage they can do!

Turn the handle a few times and it etches into the coin

We all had a great time at Pearl Harbour. Spent many hours there and then went off to Wal Mart on the way home to do some shopping and then to the Ross store for the girls to shop crazy!!..

Got home late and had an awesome day!
