Now I will admit that the Coast Guard gets pretty short shrift on this blog. It is not because I don't admire them because I do admire the Coast Guard. They do pretty awesome work given the way they are treated in Washington at times. I usually don't see their vessels but when I do, I make it a point to take pictures and mention them here because they deserve it.before and consequently, I'm not going to go into detail on this post. This was a picture I took from Belle Isle. Unfortunately, I was shooting into the sun, so the picture is a little washed out.
