Through the Looking Glass

In an older part of the Pike Place Market, in the area where the crafters are selling their goods, there is a row of old windows that look out over Elliott Bay. It would be easy to overlook them as the focus of the tourists and shoppers are the wares in the foreground. But the […]

There is always quite a bit of business going on at the Port of Seattle. Here, we are looking down the mouth of the Duwamish River from across the Seattle Waterfront. It has been modified for the loading and unloading of container ships. Harbor Island is seen on the right. And just above the Seattle […]

Ferry Arriving in Edmonds

Come on over! Pull up a bench and relax for a while while you watch the Washington State Ferry M/V Walla Walla arrive in Edmonds from across Puget Sound and Kingston. I would suggest bringing along a cup of clam chowder for a day like this. Photo: Taken at Olympic Beach in Edmonds on 10 […]

End of a Day of Fishing

A boat is coming back into the Port of Edmonds Marina as the sun sets through the clouds. That’s quite a few fishing poles you have there! The Olympic Mountains can be seen poking their heads out through the clouds. Photo: Taken in Edmonds on 10 October 2014.

Everett and Mount Baker

An early Summer photo of Mount Baker is seen here from Puget Sound. The occasion was the first day of service for the new Washington State ferry M/V Tokitae. The Everett Waterfront in in the foreground, including the Everett Naval Base, home of the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, seen here. Photo: Taken from Puget Sound […]
