Default Earl's gone - I'm at the beach

For the first time we've been out here in years. Loving it.

Life's a beach!

(Another reason I like living in Florida.)

Hey Ted,

Nice shot and those waves are very much larger than any of the ones that I've seen this morning.

Default The Sentinel

One of a chain of WWII watchtowers along the ocean below Fort Miles, Delaware. They were intended first to spot Nazi warships and then to provide triangulation data on them, for aiming the [Edit: not 12"] 16" guns at the Fort.

Thanks for sharing that photo, a reminder of living history.

Actually, if I remember a little history, Ft Miles also had some Navy guns, and that included both the 16" and the 12" Navy models. battery 519 had the two 12" and Battery 118 had the two 16". I think everything else was Army issue. Did you go inside the watchtower and get any shots from there?
