A scene from Coronado

You may recall I recently spent a little vacation time in Coronado, CA. Home of the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, it is also home of the Basic Underwater Demolition School, or BUDS. BUDS is the first step in becoming a Navy SEAL. I didn’t spend a whole lot of time looking for the guys going through BUDS, but I did happened to get one good shot of them heading out in their inflatable boats.


It was a warm day, but let me tell you, the Pacific never gets all that warm there.  You can also see parts of their obstacle course in the foreground.

  1. When I was out there in July the sea temps were in the low 60s. It doesn’t take a long exposure to that before uncontrollable shivering sets in. I’ve seen guys exposed to 80 degree water have to get out in less than hour.
