Wind, whales and big ships

This was yesterday afternoons very misty view of the USS John C Stennis going out for sea trials.This is the first time the Stennis has been underway since returning from a surge deployment on May 3, 2013 and represents the final phase of the ships 16 month maintenance period.
Just a couple of hours before I spotted this David had seen a humpback whale really close to shore heading north into Eliott Bay where apparently it lingered for quite a while – no doubt to admire Seattle’s fabulous skyline 😉
Today has been a lot clearer but very windy, I’m still listening to 35mph+ gusts out there but we were treated to some great cloud colour with tonights sunset 😀

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
