CG 630 Comes Home

December 6, 2010

I happened to be on the 12th Street Pier yesterday when I saw Coast Guard ship 630 (Alert) coming in to dock at the Maritime Museum at the 19th Street Pier. Later I overheard someone in a store talking about the ship's homecoming, and it sounded like she'd been out for awhile. I don't know the story - maybe one of our readers will comment.

In this picture you can see all hands on deck, only a few short fathoms from home. You can read more about the Alert here and here.

I like the coast guard ships.

My German grandfather was a naval instructor on board what is now Eagle and used to be Horst Wessel.

Must be in our genes, Ciel! My great grandfather was a sailor, too... Great shots, Sheryl. Hope someone tells us the story.

Beautiful photos, Sheryl! Especially nice is the way the white stands out against the blue (and green) background.

I was in the Navy, but never aboard a ship! So much for seeing the world through a porthole!
