I've finally returned from my ride on board the USS
Miami. I'm back in Bremerton, safe and sound. I had a really good trip;
I got to see some amazing places, and managed to get a lot of quals
done. I also got to make a lot of new friends who helped me a lot a long
the way. However, now that I am home, it is time to turn my attentions
to the shipyard life once again. I will be reporting back down to the
San Fran on Monday, and I anticipate I will be getting put on the EDO
(Engineering Duty Officer) watch bill in short order. This means that I
will be pretty busy, since I will be spending every third night on the
boat. The holidays are coming up, though, so I have a 10-day leave
period coming up from 26 December to 05 January.
So, I figure that while I have a little time this
weekend I should post an update on my site and break the 2+ month
drought. Today's update is a small selection of the more than 300 photos
I took while riding the Miami that chronicle two of the port calls we
made. Please take a look!
