War and Peace

Posted by Hello


We live in one of the most peaceful looking places in the country. The expanses of water, the mountains in the distance invoke a feeling of serenity. This photo was taken about a mile from our house, looking at Indian Island Naval Magazine, where war ships come to load supplies (ordnance, ammunition). On our way into town the other day, where the road rises to a hilltop and Puget Sound comes into view, we saw a nuclear submarine making its way to Subase Bangor. It was the first time we had seen such a thing in these waters, but know that trident subs move about fairly often. The military is the largest single employer in the state of Washington. Oh, that's Mount Baker in the background. Sure is pretty, isn't it?
