Fort Flagler State Park, on Marrowstone Island, is located adjacent to a U.S. Navy ammunition depot on Indian Island. As we camped last week we saw this aircraft carrier parked at the depot. It caught DH’s attention as it’s one of the few remaining of this type, similar to one he called home long ago.
This is the USS Nimitz on a very rare stop here, its fifth since it was commissioned in 1975. It’s a big ship, over 1,000 feet in length. It offloaded ammunition and conducted crew training while at Indian Island for about five days. It will move next year to Bremerton for maintenance and modernization.
