The ARC Gloria, the official flagship of the Colombian Navy, was in the Port of San Francisco last weekend.
It couldn’t have been a more glorious weekend to pay a visit to this wonderful ship from Colombia.
We were met at the ramp onto the ship by shipmen who escorted us onboard where we were given a little tour, and then allowed to roam about to explore.
The ship was commissioned in 1968
I think the sailors are away from home quite a bit, staying in various ports to represent their country as goodwill ambassadors. They seem to stay well connected to friends and family.
Getting around on the ship was fun, and a bit more of a challenge for some more than others.
I have to include the Wikipedia photo of the ship taken at sunset in Cartagena
