We tied up at the 'free' dock on the Portsmouth side of the harbour and took a paddle-wheeler over to Norfolk to tour the great battleship, U.S. Wisconsin (also known as The Wisky). At 887 feet long, it can hold over 3000 sailors, and crossed the Panama Canal with only one foot clearance on either side! With her combat days gratefully behind her, The Wisky now sits peacefully in Norfolk Harbour, ogled by inquisitive tourists. Afterwards we investigated the historic old town, including MacArthur Park, with its' tribute to General MacArthur, and Waterfront Park.
