Ferries Passing in the Fog

I guess something just intrigued me about all of the foggy days we had recently. One of those things might have been the constant sound of ship’s horns that have been echoing off of our hillside lately. So I went down to see them at water level. Here, the ferry M/V Spokane (on the right) […]

We Have a Winner!

One of my interests is ferry boats, and I follow an Internet Forum that has discussions, and displays photos, about ferries in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. Every month they have a photo contest where readers can submit a banner that might be used at the top of the website for a month. There […]

Ferry in the Ship Canal

I got a tip that Washington State Ferries was going to send one of it’s ferries to the Lake Union Drydock for a maintenance project. That trip would mean a trip through the Ballard Locks, a sight that would be pretty exciting. Well, I couldn’t make it to the locks in time for the event, […]

Edmonds on a Summer Day

This just makes me want to ask you to come visit Edmonds in the Summer sun. Each and every day is a new day when you are enjoying the view from the Brackett’s Landing Jetty. On a clearer day, our couple would be able to admire the Olympic Mountains in the distance. But not today. […]

Brackett’s Landing

I was down on the beach in Edmonds taking pictures at low tide when a couple of gentlemen in wetsuits came by. Beyond the Brackett’s Landing area in Puget Sound is the Edmonds Underwater Park with 27 acres of fun things to dive around. It is just North of the Edmonds Ferry Terminal, and really […]

Sealth & Elwha

If I like to do anything, I like to take pictures of ferries and ride on ferries. On a recent cruise in the San Juan Islands, I encountered several of the boats at one time. Shown here is the M/V Sealth on the right and the M/V Elwha on the left. We were aboard a […]

A Little Bit to the Right

This picture was taken from the viewpoint on Queen Anne Hill — the same one as the picture of the Space Needle and the Seattle Skyline from last week. Only this time the camera is pointed a little bit to the right. Instead of a busy city skyline, we get the following, in no particular […]

Old and New Ferries

Another sunny day watching boats on Puget Sound, and traffic picks up approaching Seattle. Here we see the passenger ferry M/V Rich Passage 1 and auto Ferry M/V Kaleetan pass in Elliott Bay while serving the Seattle to Bremerton route. It truly is a wonderful day for a sea cruise, even if it is a […]

Cruise Ships in Seattle

There are quite a few cruise ships coming in and out of Seattle and cruising to British Columbia and Alaska this time of year. Like any good visitor, the cruise ship Carnival Spirit is seen here posing next to the Space Needle. Some of these ships are certainly huge! Ironically, this was taken while I […]

A Busy Day on Puget Sound

It was a busy day on the water on this sunny but hazy Summer afternoon. There were all sorts of watercraft out on Puget Sound, from cruise ships and container ships to lonely kayaks crossing the waterways. Here we can see three of those ships: The Washington State Ferry Spokane, the Victoria Clipper passenger ferry […]
