... parked there which is a 1941 submarine that patrolled much of the Pacific. This thing had been refitted in Brisbane back in the day and was credited with sinking 15 enemy ships. Boo-yah.
I, most definitely, would not have been a sailor on board one of these things. Paying the utmost attention I think I hit my head 4 times.
... and they all had jazz playing. I chose a place that had a female lead in the band. She was dressed up like something from the 40s and her smooth voice was from that era too. I sat at the bar and enjoyed the music. A young couple were dancing in front of the stage. They kicked and wheeled and swung, obviously not the first time they'd danced like that. Lessons maybe.
