Summary: Are those killer whales? Pinky happens across some fins making their way through a lakeside park.
There is a park next to the water in Seattle. It looks pretty ordinary. See?
Bunny and I were taking a walk there. We were making photographs of flowers and bushes we'd never seen before. Just walking around, when suddenly we saw something weird. To me it looked like a large group of killer whales swimming through the park. They weren't moving so we went closer. There were actually, a lot of fins. Big metal fins. We walked around them, and through them.
These ones over here they look like all the whales are turning right. See? I like this one - it looks like a mommy and a baby. What is this stuff?
Come to find out, it's art. See the plaque? The plaque says it's art. It's called the Fin Project: From Swords to Plowshares. I didn't know what a plowshare was - it's the tool people use to prepare the soil for growing things. Before, these fins used to be the diving fins on U.S. nuclear attack submarines. Nuclear submarines carrying nuclear missiles. And now, they just make me think of killer whales.
"They will beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,
neither shall they learn to war anymore..."
- Old Testament, Micah, Chapter 4.
