Fleet Week

Sailors from all points hither cometh to New York City cause its Memorial Day Weekend. The girls go crazy the gays go nuts and the tourists are in awe. It would be senseless to go anywhere close to a popular part of town right now and that is just about anywhere. So since there is no gettin' out of it and when in Rome...well you know how that goes. I am going to try and get as many sailor pictures as I can and post them as I get them....lets see if this years Fleet Week measures up.



All I got is Google, can you believe I did not see a single sailor. We ARE at WAR right now and it isnt as sexy to be a sailor I guess. Past fleet weeks during non war times have included boats and sailors from other countries. The city was a little quiet, the tourist areas were not as congested either. Typical long weekend where it seems like a ghost town - not the usual 20 million people more like around 12 million to make it seem quiet.
