USS Abe Lincoln

The week prior to Thanksgiving our friends on the USS Lincoln arrived in Bahrain and we were THRILLED to be invited to tour the ship! Gabe Tonozzi gave us the grand tour of the massive vessel.

The Far-Far Away Flusches

Tanner's got the need for speed!

The Guys

"LOOK! It's Mr. Gabe & Mr. Matt!"

Gavin wanted to do it himself...

I think it's pretty safe to say someone misses his son Josh.

Daddy & Gavster

Ummmm, yeah, OK. No problem there!

Great shot of Tanner

And you thought your ride was cool...

Gabe and the boys

Hello Sailor ;)

The Bridge

I sailor AND photographer in me couldn't resist this shot... it's a cleat on the deck. Sometimes simple industrial things can be beautiful.

This shields those on deck from the jet ehaust

"Take'n a Looksie"

Tanner: "Can I dive out this window?" Me: "Ummmm... NO."

Gabe, Matt and Travis' office: Where they "shoot" the planes off the deck. Tanner thought that this looked like a great place to work because it gives you a different perspective of the deck. He noticed right off that the "office" was equipped with AC, two shooters work in "The Bubble" at one time.

Daddy & Gavin "patrolling" the corridors

The highlight of the tour was visiting the Bridge where the Captain makes all the key decisions or as Tanner will tell you "The Captain sits in a tall chair and sometimes he can drive the boat if he wants to". Kids. ;)

Tanner thinks being the Captain is "where it's at!"

Paige & Maggie

Gabe explaining the job of the Captain, Tanner & Maggie just want to "drive it" ;)

Ready Room

This is where Gabe and his roommate Travis call home. Spacious, right? ;) They actually have a pretty nice set-up all things considered. Two bunk beds, 2 desks, a sink, some dwars and the ever important flat screen TV with an X-Box.

Tanner thinks those two are "live'n the dream" and was ready to move in!
