sometimes i wonder…

…where this went:

quonset-chapel

This is the chapel at Quonset Point, on the Navy base, where Banjo Man and I were married.  He was a former Sea Bee and I was the daughter of a career Navy chief.

Four years after the wedding the base was closed and many of the buildings were dismantled or sold and moved.

The chapel was one of those buildings that moved, but I don’t know where it went.  I’d love to see it again, would love to take some pictures and show my children.  It holds a special place in my heart, as do many of my “Navy memories”.

I once had a birthday party on an aircraft carrier (my father was the Ultimate Party Planner of his day) and learned to dance at the Chief’s Club. 

Being married at Quonset Point was a no-brainer back in 1970.  Although I have lost my wedding album (I’m sure it will turn up one of these years) and there are few wedding gifts that survived 46 years, I never thought I’d lose track of the chapel!

It must be in Rhode Island somewhere….
