It’s a tad late posting these, but I wanted to share photos from one of our last vintage outings. My husband and I went to a WWII re-enactment public display at the beginning of this month at Fort Rosecrans, San Diego, in remembrance of Pearl Harbor. They recently restored an underground bunker, and they do a small WWII public display once a month. You can find out more on the Cabrillo National Monument website and by calling the park to see when they plan on having the bunker open to the public. There’s also a Victorian lighthouse, a military cemetery and tide pools at this park, but we ran out of sunlight and camera batteries, unfortunately!
Here’s some photos of the day.
Being the sucker for adventure that I am, I could not resist the opening of the bunker! Who knows what untold fun awaited us? But in WWII I’m sure there was a heavy dose of fear that accompanied the need to go into these bunkers.
I’m on the lookout.
And some shots of the inside of the bunker. The re-enactors brought most of these with them to set the bunker up to how it would have looked at wartime.
My husband and I. I’m wearing the 1940s jerkin I made a while back and a new shirt I made especially for this occasion.
And our beautiful San Diego coastline.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and Happy New Year! Be safe while you celebrate!
