This Navy ship was in port the entire time I was in New Orleans for a conference. On my very last night in town, right after I made this shot, I found out the name of the ship – the Kearsarge. THEN, when I looked it up, I found out that there have been several previous Kearsarges, including one whose name was changed to the Hornet. My father-in-law served aboard the Hornet in the 1950s.
And, so it seemed like everything came full circle, right there beside the Mississippi River.
New Orleans, Louisiana
