Tattoo festival in 2012

In 2012, the U.S. Navy Band performed at the Virginia International Tattoo Festival in Norfolk, Virginia. We stayed in Norfolk for a few days, and it was quite an experience musically. It was also interesting to walk around and visit this city with a great naval history. Here is the finale of that festival:

During this trip, I was notified that I had been selected as Chief of the Quarter, which was probably one of the highest points of my Navy career.

Here are some photos of that trip. Norfolk has a lot of mermaid statues–I loved finding them in different places as I walked around.
