San Jacinto Monument and Battleship

Today we visited the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Park about 25 minutes away. The ship was so neat and we liked to watch the ships and boats go by in the ship channel.

This is the battleship called the USS Texas. Its sitting in the water in concrete and you can go in and take a tour of the ship. Its crazy to think that that ship was actually used in battle in the war.

The Houston Ship Channel you can see from the monument park.

Money used back in the day.

Can you see us up there?

Inside the bottom of the monument there is a museum of the history of Texas and also an elevator that you can ride to the observation deck at the top.
