Doug's work at the USS Lexington
Doug enjoyed his time volunteering at the USS Lexington. Sometimes he worked in the library and then they put him to work doing some painting in preparation for their yearly fundraising banquet.
This gun at the entrance to the ship/museum was one of the items that Doug painted the day before their fundraiser.
This is the view from the Lexington's access ramp looking across to downtown Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi is the 4th largest port in the US. It has a narrow manmade ship channel that goes about 12 miles to the right of this photo. The ocean going ships are escorted by tugs through the ship channel to their dock. This photo is of an ocean tanker leaving the ship channel and barge ready to enter the channel. In the photo below, I caught the tank in the background of the Lexington as the tanker started across the bay heading through the pass at Port Aransas.
