I saw a 17 minute about the history of Rosie, the welder, in the shipyard in Richmond. The history is amazing. I was there at 10 am, when the place opened.

Had an enjoyable afternoon visiting the museum. Saw several short films and was lucky enough to hear Betty Reid Soskin speak as well. I learned so much from her about her life and the Richmond area during the war years.
