Only had a short time here due to needing to get back on the road and pending severe storm warning,tried to jog it between sites, good day to sweat as there is a heat wave right now. Deposited my wife at the Bunker Hill Monument and started following the brick marked Freedom Trail, went across the Charlestown bridge then in short order turned around wanting to make sure I made it to the USS Constiution,aka Old Ironsides, oldest continually serving ship in the US Navy. The Charlestown naval yard is still operated by the US Navy, had been enthralled with stories of Old Ironsides since childhood, finally had a few minutes to check it out. Obviously my pace slowed here starting with going through airport like security. Since I was here decided to briefly go on board , took a look at the rigging, decking and cannon placements. Went up to the young man at his post under the ship’s bell in an 1812 sailors uniform. Jokingly asked when he was going to lower the sail, actually he was a gunnery mate but did help out on Tuesdays when it is actually done. Quite an honor and plum position to be stationed here for 3 years to help promote the Navy. Continuing to talk I told him I was a retired Captain, had my id with me, having part of the time served as a submarine and diving medical officer when on active duty. I’m grateful he made sure everyone knew when I was departing with attention to bells, 8 rings and announcing Navy Captain retired departing, best part of my day to be rung off the USS Constitution will remember for awhile. Need to return when I have time to more fully explore the north side sites.
