The U.S.S. Slater is a Destroyer-Escort ship that served during World War II. It is the only Destroyer-Escort ship still afloat on display, sitting along the banks of the Hudson River in downtown Albany, NY. We took a tour of the ship, what an adventure!

WHAT a tremendous museum! Four enormous floors stocked full of everything you can possibly imagine– cars, instruments, dolls, an Iroquois longhouse, science experiments, and even a small glider airplane! A perfect place to spend a day.

Oriskany Battlefield: Bloodiest Battle of the American Revolution

Oriskany Battlefield: Bloodiest Battle of the American Revolution

There is an element of deep sadness here. This was the battleground of the bloodiest battle in the fight for American independence. But it set off a shockwave of victory that helped to change the course of the war. Hundreds of men died here. We came to give our respects, and found time to have a little fun, too.
