Too Cute.

USS North Carolina (SSN 777) Departs for Deployment

And now, for something completely different …

Most of the photos on the Defense Department website these days show folks wearing facemasks, rubber gloves and other protective gear, moving hospital beds, setting up hospital tents, stacking hospital gowns, loading or unloading food and medical supplies carried by trucks, ships, helicopters and airplanes. They’re also taking temperatures, swabbing, recording, sanitizing … you get the picture.

But you won’t get it today on this blog. There’s been enough this week and last month and the month before that about … you know what. We don’t want to even type that word and number anymore today.

We’ll have photos of all those brave, hard-working people in coming days, but right now,  here’s a sweet picture with no masks or thermometers. Just somebody’s children on a breezy day down by the water waving at a big black boat and its little companion.

According to the accompanying photo caption, these children are waving goodbye as the Virginia class fast-attack submarine USS North Carolina departs Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, in Hawaii on March 25, 2020.

So take your time, feel the breeze, smell the sea, listen for bird calls and waves lapping over the sound of the motorboat.
