WWII Bunker at Camp Rilea

I think the kids were more excited about getting to play in the WWII bunker we found at Camp Rilea than the Civil War reenactment. Us adults enjoyed the view of the ocean as well as the wildlife while the kids played and played in this bunker. What a homeschool opportunity!

My nephew, Josh, inside the bunker. It was in pretty good shape still.

Loved this graffiti. Michael had to explain it to me. "Big Red One" was here Sept, 15th, 1944. How cool is that?

My nephew insisted I video their WWII reenactment. They were totally crackin' me up, especially Josh. He is the sound effect king. 

I've been so busy with the prolific garden and having fun that I haven't had to time to visit other blogs, but hope to soon. Miss seeing what everyone is up to :o) 

Blessings, 
Jackie

Wow, that is amazing!!! It is fun to find interesting bits of history like that! We were once stationed at Beale AFB in N. California, and learned that during the Civil War, they actually had camels out there on the base (it was a dry place). Also, there is a tiny POW jail on the base that was used during WWII and you can read some German grafiti on the walls!

Ha! Fun video (was great quality, did you shoot it on your camera or phone?)

You guys always go on the BEST homeschool field trips! :)
