    Hello my friend Kristina.We had a Russian submarine here in Rhode Island too,it was actually use in a movie..Unlucky it was damaged in a winter storm and had to be scrapped.Russian diesel subs of that type were never built for comfort.Knowing you are a history buff that type sub was used during the Cuban missile crisis.Imagine sailing all the way from Russia to Cuba in that type of submarine,you would certainly go crazy.Hope you had time to visit David’s family while you were in Belgium.Looking forward to your next diary post. and hope my birthday gifts and card are waiting for you when you get home.Stay well your friend Mike.

      Hello Mike, thanks a lot for commenting.
      Yes, you are right . There will be plenty of post waiting for me after such a long time without being at home.
      I was actually very happy going out of the submarine 🙂 Yes, as usual, very nice time, just the weather.
      Wish you a nice day.

    We have one in Rochester here as well, only thing is, its a rust bucket and has not been very well looked after, also there is one on Chatham as well, our town used to have a navy base before it closed back in 82. Chatham dockyard is open to the public and there a few retired warships there for people to go on board and look around, we also have the sea planes, (glad to be back on MMW 🙂 I missed it) , The submarine at the dockyard here had electric torpedoes instead of the standard torp, meaning that when launched no one would see it before it struck its target. Lovely bit of history that you visited though 🙂

      Hello Keith, welcome back and thank you for commenting.
      It is always very interesting to see all the things from history.
      Thanks for giving us a small history lesson 🙂
      We should be thankful for the relative piece we have.
      Wish you a nice evening.
