The View

One of the great things about our apartment is the view from the balcony. Whenever we hear a ship's horn (which is pretty frequent) Jerry turns and says "da boat!" At that point we usually have to go out and check it out.

Here are some of the pictures I've already taken. An advantage to swing shift is that I'm home during the day when all this is going on.

The other day the USS Lassen was pulling out.

This is a Japanese submarine. They are much smaller than US subs. I'm not sure what they use them for, but they have quite a few. I've seen up to five moored here at a time.

Here's a shot of Yokosuka from our hotel. The tall building to the right is the place we stayed in 2010. 

This is our hotel for this trip. So far it's working out great.
