Waiting for the Ferry at Kingston

On our way home from Port Townsend, we took the ferry from Kingston to Edmonds.  We got there just as one ferry was leaving so we were safely guaranteed a space on the next one.  Rather than sit in the car, I walked down to the overlook of the water so I could see what was moving out on the water.  In the end, it was mainly watching the ferry that had just left as it headed away and then looking out for our ferry as it made the crossing and approached.  I was quite surprised how few people came to have a look given that it was a lovely day and there were loads of cars waiting to board!

Cormorants on the Dock

How long is it since I have had a cormorant post?  Too long, that’s how long.  Taking trips on the ferries means you can get quite close to the cormorants on the pilings in the water alongside which the ferries berth.  Of course, whenever they are close by, I don’t have a camera to hand.  One part of the dock did have a ton of them resting on it so, given my recent dearth of cormorant shots, I felt I had to do it.
