She was commissioned in May of 1942 when most of the American Navy lay at the bottom of Pearl Harbor and with the shadow of German Fascism looming over Europe. By November of '42 the USS Massachusetts was seeing its first action in the battle of Casablanca as Allied forces moved into North Africa. She serves now as a quiet reminder of US military might and what America's "great generation" accomplished during those dark years. She's also part of the largest collection of historical Naval vessels in the world! Most weekends these days her decks swarm with cub scouts and their dads as they get to bunk up where real fighting men once did. For a full boat of history, facts, news items, event descriptions, membership opportunities and all the rest you must visit their very complete website at www.battleshipcove.com

Fair Journey,

This panorama was taken in Narragansett Bay

This is an overview of Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation. 

Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
