The Battleship Texas at http://www.halloween.whipnet.net/images/ext.png3527 Battleground Road (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=3527%20Battleground%20Road,+La%20Porte,+TX, +USA&sa=X&oi=map&ct=title) in La Porte, Texas. A red-haired, smiling sailor who died while on duty, occasionally appears on the second deck. The ship is reportedly haunted by a friendly ghost, reportedly a red-headed sailor who appears on one of the many decks. [http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/battleship_texas/]

It's just a short drive down I45 to Seawolf park in Galveston to the berths of the USS CAVALLA (WWII Submarine) and the USS STEWART (destroyer escort - one of only 3 in the world.

Ahhhh, memories...I've been on the Battleship many times too and have never seen the red-haired sailor. I've also been to Seawolf Park and toured the Elissa. Kids really like the Battleship. It just won't be the same if they put it on a big ol' block of cement :(.

If you like that kind of stuff, check out the Saratoga Lights/Hardin Road Ghost stories and the haunted hotels of Jefferson, Tx.

Jim, never been to Seawolf Park. But will next time I am down that way. Matter of fact I didn't even know it was there at all. I don't get out much any more. I would love to see the sub, also would love some fresh seafood. CF

Cooksie mentioned the Elissa, that's worth a visit too along with the Strand and the RR Museum in the old RR Station at the end of Strand Blvd.

We enjoy Hill's Pier 19 for lunch, not fancy at all but good food.

I'm from the Wichita Falls area, worked in Dallas for 20 years with a few years in Houston.

OMG, they're all over the place :eek:. Actually, I think the Saratoga lights are gasses of some type and the Marfa lights are probably headlights from cars :D. Signed, The Skeptic

I toured the USS Lexington many years ago. Didn't realize they had other decommissioned naval ships at the time. I think I've seen a really great dawn photo of the battleship Texas, in the fog, with the superstructure poking up through the fog.

We have a WWII era sub here in OK, berthed in Muskogee, OK. The USS Batfish. I've toured her twice, both as a kid. About 20 years ago, we had some huge rainfall amounts in that area. The dry-dock where the Batfish is berthed started collecting water. Enough water pooled that the bow of the sub actually lifted off the ground.

Dang typos. I usually catch them, but a small percentage seem to always slip through.
