Pensacola National Naval Aviation Museum Letterboxing

Sometimes the Letterboxing plants are just too delicious not to share.  This was the case of the two Letterboxes I found at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola.  The museum is amazing and stocked full of Naval history, well put together displays and lots and lots of planes.  While we were there we even watched a film in the IMAX theater about the Blue Angels.  This free museum (the IMAX was not complimentary) is well worth visiting if you are ever in the area.  We should have allowed more time as we only toured about half of the displays before it was closing time.
The highlight for me were the two Letterboxes I discovered that were planted inside the museum via my Box Radar application on my phone.  Anthony and I flew around the museum in the process of locating my targets and as extreme stealth was necessary we had to be patient for just the right opportunities to nab the boxes.  This is a pretty popular and high traffic museum.  Fortunately picture taking is a good distraction and Anthony snapped the pictures as I located the Letterboxes and found a quiet corner or two to stamp in.  I was able to find both boxes and return them to their clever hiding spots without so much as a raised eyebrow.  They were a lot of fun to find.  It was a very rainy afternoon so the indoor plants were really appreciated.  
After the museum tour we visited a very popular local restaurant called McGuires Irish Pub.  This restaurant was not only packed with patrons but also over a million dollars in signed $1.00 bills hanging for every spot on the ceiling you can find.  The food portions were gigantic and delicious.  We left with tons of doggie bags and very stuffed tummies.
