Erected in 1998, 22 diving-plane fins from 1960s Navy subs are mounted upright into the ground of a park, like the fins of a pod of whales.

Submarine Relics: The Fin Project

It was in good condition and all the placards were intact. I enjoyed seeing the names of the subs along with references to local orcas, and it was fun to be able to touch pieces of our military history while simultaneously reflecting on nature. It blows my mind that this has been in place for 25 years and I am only just discovering it after living in the area for nearly two decades myself.
