Spotted this beauty today. Had to grab a photo, so we “borrowed” someone’s driveway, and I got a few photos before anyone spotted me (yes, they were home). Anyhow this is the US Coast Guard Cutter Fir, based in Astoria, Oregon. Her nickname is “The Bar Tender”, and her motto is: No Bar Too Tough, Too Rough, Too Far. If interested, you can read more about her here. USCGC Fir is down in Yaquina Bay doing some work with NOAA on buoy’s.
Four shots: I like the first because of the wake. I like the second because I got a slightly better placement.
