This battleship saw action in the Pacific Theatre in WWII. The best things in the gift shop were pieces of the original teak deck, for sale.

Don't pick the flowers!!

“What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
Oh let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.” 

--Gerard Manley Hopkins
