Looked like an American destroyer transiting  past Discovery Island this afternoon.

Possibly this ship, home-ported in Everett and currently working on operational training post its sea trials phase:

Anyone ever notice the machine guns/artillery at the tip of Esquimalt harbour.

Not necessarily. The ship could be working with the US Coast Guard tracking drug smugglers.

The latest position has the Winnipeg having exited the canal in the Caribbean, and on a heading of 40 degrees at 25 knots.

When navy officers are musing about problems at a function, I'm going to assume something is up.

Ya, but they are old, just for show.  They do not work.  That's old skewl defence.  If a Russian ship has got that far without permission, we are in serious trouble.

Could have been, I was busy trying to golf and just saw it from a distance.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
