When we pulled into the carpark last Thursday morning before school, we peered across the ocean and saw this awesome sight:
It is the USS George Washington, an aircraft carrier normally stationed off Japan that is now docked off Cottesloe beach for a week of shore leave. There are American sailors all over the place, which is giving me freaky flashbacks to my military brat upbringing. The funniest part of this new addition to the shoreline was how it influenced school drop-off on Friday. We were tickled to note the number of dads who volunteered for drop-off and made their kids a bit late to school due to oogling the ship from the shore.
