USS Lexington

Location - The Caribbean - 15 50 N, 077 37 W

As you come out under the Corpus Christi inner harbour bridge, you'll find the USS Lexington on your port side, moored to a jetty next to the Texas State Aquarium. The Lady Lex (as she is popularly known) has been decommissioned for some time now & has been converted to a Museum. I had gone on it the last time I had come to Corpus & it has a great flight simulator where you get to see an actual flight mission in Iraq & then get close to planes lined up on the main deck.

This time we saw the aquarium, but gave a pass to the Lex.
