Washington State’s Puget Sound region has hosted US Navy bases for more than 120 years. The first US Naval Station started in 1891 at the current Puget Sound Naval Shipyard location in Bremerton, Washington. Since then, the Puget Sound has been home to submarine bases, naval air stations, carrier bases, ordinance support and underwater testing grounds. One of the neat things about living in the Puget Sound is that we commonly see Navy ships, war planes and submarines juxtaposed against our beautiful landscape. Here are a couple of shots I took the other day from a location on Whidbey Island. We were able to watch and photograph the USS Nimitz and a Navy submarine as they headed out to the Pacific Ocean through Admiralty Inlet.
