4/8/2011 – weird, or maybe not

This is a photo of the ship I served on during my time in the Navy (1969-1973), the USS Tolovana, AO-64, a fleet oiler. The weird thing about this photo is that it was reportedly taken in Subic Bay, Philippines in 1971. That means that, if you could blow the picture up far enough and not lose resolution, you might be able to find a 20-year old version of me somewhere on deck. Is it just me or is that sort of freaky?

Thanks to Erich Utecht for this and many other great Tolovana photos.


About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
