The Cement Ship
In Rio Del Mar / Aptos, just a stones throw from our main office, sits the famous Cement Ship (the USS Palo Alto), permanently anchored and bearing the brunt of the Pacific. (Photo courtesy of Flickr)
I took in this view on my Saturday morning run. I learned a bit of the history of this ship, one of only three made during World War I.
"Cement ship" - kind of boggles the mind; I just had to share.
