So the HMS Surprise is a 1970s replica of a 1700s ship at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. But she's a beautiful ship. You may recognize her from Master and Commander, though I understand she has a brief stint in the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
I assume there is a cannon on the other side of that wall!
OK, this is just a little surreal.
Like the Columbia in Disneyland, this ship has an impressive captain's room. Unlike the Columbia, you could walk around in it!
One last look.
I have more on the H.M.S. Surprise on my personal blog.
Next week, a more modern ship to wrap up Ship Month. Just haven't decided which one yet!
