SUISUN BAY  - August 13, 2013

"Before I went to Vallejo to photograph the undocking of USS Kansas City, I went to  "Jack-In-The-Box".
This is North of Benicia, CA, across Interstate 680, by the Vista Point I was to photograpg from.
After getting something to eat, noticed that even the two most easterly rows of ships in the Reserve fleet were visible.
The reserve fleet has shrunk a lot, perhaps to much."   Mike McCullough
