Waiting For You

This shot is a tribute to all the Millitary couples who wait for their significant others to come home…often one can see Navy ships disappear over the horizon here…and then later reappear…emotions run  deep both times! Taken from Coronado looking NNW

San Diego harbor holds one of the largest naval fleets in the world. This has become the largest concentration of Naval facilities in the world due to US base reductions and retrenchment of the Russian naval base in Vladivostok. Two of the U.S. Navy’s Nimitz class Supercarriers,  five amphibious assault ships, several Los Angeles class “fast attack” submarines, the Hospital Ship USNS Mercy , carrier and submarine tenders, destroyers, cruisers, frigates, and many smaller ships are home-ported here.
