USS Kitty Hawk, Garden Island Naval Base, Sydney Harbour, Wednesday 11.05 July 6th 2005.

I decided to revisit the USS Kitty Hawk after being here on Monday. When it was last here in May 2001 over 40,000 people were allowed on board during its week long stay. I guess times have changed since then, as this six day visit allows no public access. You can view the ship from behind a wire fence. Security is relaxed and the base security guards don't seem to mind photographs been taken, despite many signs prohibiting it. Here two crew members, dressed in civilian clothes, head for some shore leave.
