Today supposed to be a leisurely day at sea. And it started that way. A bright Sun shown down on a deep blue ocean. "Deep blue sea" is not just an expression. As the lecturer today mentioned, the deep ocean gets it rich, dark, deep blue because the ocean swallows (absorbs, in scientific terms) all of the red, yellow, and green light; reflecting only the pure blue.
But the peaceful day came to a dramatic conclusion with a medical evacuation from the ship. The Coast Guard sent out one of their HH-60 Jayhawks, painted in the Coast Guard Aviation Centennial paint job. While the color represents the color of the original USCG helicopters, I don't find it aesthetically pleasing.
