Work All Day For The Sugar In Your Tea
Military bases can be fascinating places sometimes. My mother was telling me about ghost ships in the neglected harbor of this base. I saw them through the afternoon haze; shadowy figures along the horizon line. They stand ready, fully functioning and completely prepared for the day they are required. But the decks are empty and no crew mans the lonely vessels. And then there are these abandoned trains, rusting off the back roads. I don't know what purpose these serve, but I'm glad I'm able to visit them. My range of exploration is so limited here compared to the expanse I used to roam in Washington state last year, but there are still many interesting things to uncover.
