Mare Island Shipyard - Heavy Lifter

Another image from Mare Island Naval Shipyard.  I’ve never been this close to a shipyard crane before.  As you can see it’s humongous.  There weren’t any people down there so I couldn’t show the scale with a person but hopefully you get the idea with the buildings next to it. 44 more words

Giant hornets, large spiders, wild boars, monkeys, deers, snakes, mosquitos, bumble bees, regular bees, rats, mice, cats, pigeons, dragonflies, raccoons… and maybe even a bear – you have to love animals if you want to do urbex in Japan! 671 more words
