California Sunsets #27 – He’s Back…

in promo-steem •  5 months ago

The winds finally got tired and left us with crisp skies and this boat that won’t leave. Yes, that boat is back again. It’s not a typical type of boat we see down here in Southern California. I did first see this boat a few days ago and posted here: California Sunsets #26 – Magical

Then the boat was back. After a little digging, I was able to determine that the boat was a US Coast Guard Ship, possibly an 82 ft. or 87 ft. Point Class or Marine Protector Class Patrol Boat. Quite a big ship hanging out right next to the Santa Monica Pier for the past week. Been living here for 25 years and never seen such a large Coast Guard ship sitting here for so long… hmmm... Am I missing something.... We are about 9,300km from North Korea...

That said, I'd rather live life then fear life.

These photos were taken today (Wednesday) just south of the Santa Monica Pier near Lifeguard Tower 25 in Ocean Park Santa Monica with the Malibu Mountains in the background.

Great post, "live life not fear life" - we live life better with superb pictures like these. thanks for sharing!

Thank you fellow Westside Steemian. Looking forward to the summer and many more posts.

@armentor. Amazing captures again. That is one big ass ship. Never seen anything like that in SM or the Southbay. Were there any reports of sharks? Just kidding. Maybe they were training in prep for the summer.

·

My neighbors thought the same things. Either shark reports due to shifting currents from high winds or possibly training. We have seen some Coast Guard Hilos, but no LAPD or news Hilos which always happens when there are shark reportings. So much be training.

I was down there last night and as you other post showed, the coastguard ship was gone. Did't see any sharks! ;). Must have been training like you said, before it warms up.

I spoke to a lifeguard last night and he confirmed. Was for training and the ship is out of point dume. He even said they don't come down here that often.

Please resteem.

Very cool. Thus no North Koreans or Sharks! Yes I'll resteem.

I love the Californian sunsets you share with us here on steemit!

·

Thanks man!

·

@starlost. My apologies. My colleague liotap has used it before and suggested that I used it as well to help promote the use of promo-steem and original content. I am trying to edit and remove but am unable to remove the tag. Is there a way to remove it?

I reviewed the guidelines and understand why my colleague has been using the promo-steem tag and will only use it for such specific purposes. Again, please accept my apologies.

It appears one cannot remove the first tag. I was able to removed the promo-steem from my prior posts as it was the last tag.

no problem, continue with the promo-steem post and we look forward to the picture of your promo-steem activity 🍻🍻🍻

Thank you.

@starlost let me know if there are any issues but I have been using promo-steem and telling my friends about it. We do this so there is better content using the tag. Imageconomy, a project I am affiliated with, also is using it for that reason.

82 ft. or 87 ft looks like a giant, I haven't seen such type of boats in my entire life, hope one day I will see one. The boat, sea and sunset seems a perfect combination. You truly got nice photographic skills man. Look at the sun the bird, it looks awesome.

·

Usually we dont see boats that close. Thank you man!

·
·

If you want to watch them close you have to join Navy or you should change your profession to an engineer

Sure looks to be close in. It must draw a fair amount of water!

The bloody sky looks beautiful.

·

Thanks. It was crazy. more typical of a late summer sunset in October.

Your picture seems to be like the tiger hill of Darjeeling ...
Amazing capture...

·

Interesting. Thank you.

Hy friends, I think it looks more beautiful sunset views on the beach than on the hill, one day I will try like you

·

As long as you have sunsets, its all good! Thanks for resteem.

·
·

Thank you also friend, What is really like you say that, I think more beautiful on the beach like your photo,

Wow! Very beautiful to enjoy. You are photographing with an incredible ability. Thank you for sharing my friend.

Have a wonderful day!

·
