The USS Texas (BB-35) is a New York-class battleship. The ship was launched on 18 May 1912 and commissioned on 12 March 1914. The ship celebrated 100 years recently. It's an impressive battleship. Wiki
The Texas was the first US battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns
Her secondary battery consisted of twenty-one 5 inch/51 cal (127 mm) guns mounted inside the ship
Everywhere you turn on this ship there's a gun. Big guns, small guns, single barrel, dual barrel.
After walking all over on the outside including climbing to the highest accessible place I descended to the cavernous inside of the ship. In contrast to the USS Alabama, which had cabins for the men, on the Texas it seems bunks were installed wherever there was empty space with men eating or working and sleeping in the same area.

It was getting late, I had spent too much time photographing and reading and now it was time to head north towards Dallas. I leave the USS Texas and continue my way north not yet sure where I will stop. It's about 265 miles to Dallas, about 4.5 hours. I will ride until it gets dark and then find a motel for the night.
