June 14th Photos Page

Today was Flag Day and the sun was actually out for most of the day, imagine that!  We had a good turnout of volunteers for the day and continued our efforts to clean up the brass on the weather decks along the tour routes.  That meant more portholes and switch plates and other items to polish.  Every Saturday when I leave I can see the difference we've made, each week we make a little more progress and each week we leave her looking just a little bit better than when we arrived.  I didn't spend much time roaming around taking photos today, but we did get a lot accomplished.  The photos below are mostly of the regular Saturday gang in action, doing the things they do best.  That's about it for this trip, hope you enjoy the photos.
