After a couple of years having only one ferry, the Port Townsend/Keystone route got another new ferry, getting us back up to our old ferry schedule. The ferry was launched on July 1.
Another windy morning sent waves crashing into the breakwater behind (south of) Water Street. This view is over an old condemned dock to City Dock and the Port Townsend/Keystone Ferry in the distance. The Old Cannery Building is in the upper right of the picture.
The moving water gave me a bit of vertigo when I took the photo. Now, looking at it brings the feeling back. Oh well.
I know I said no more snow photos. Consider this picture more an expression of my mood after I got thoroughly chilled today. The snow, which is gone from most of Puget Sound still hangs on in Port Townsend. With rain forecast for the next few days we should see the last of the white stuff. Though with highs around 40 degrees, dark skies, and constant breezes, it won’t feel much different.
Getting to Seattle, or anywhere on the other side of Puget Sound, typically entails a ferry ride. This was taken on the way to Edmonds from Kingston.
The ferry for Whidbey Island is seen here passing behind the Hastings Building, downtown Post Townsend, under the typical January gray sky. If you look closely you can see that we had to borrow it from Pierce County as our old ferries were scrapped for being too old and unsafe.
