The Deep Blue Sea

This is a photo of the USS Frank Cable and an oiler in the process of an underway replenishment. I really enjoyed sailing the Pacific Ocean and surrounding seas, the water was so blue in certain areas that it was absolutely mesmerizing. I really developed an appreciation for the sea and I fully understand why the old school sailors, hundreds of years ago, were driven by the sea. It's mysterious, magnificient, and dangerous and it's something that gets into your soul.
