travel day

Not much time for writing today, because I've been in transit for most of it, what with catching a 6 a.m. boat out of Southworth To West Seattle, then by car to Ballard to teach my friend Bev's weekly yoga class while she's out of state.

Plus, after a torturously long and on-again-off-again foreplay, featuring innumerable peek-a-boos consisting of weak sunshine and gradually rising temperatures, full summer has finally arrived in the Northwest, as of yesterday, the 4th. Time to get outside and soak it up while the gettin's good.

The photo above shows the scene from the ferry at 12:30, leaving West Seattle on the homeward half of the trip -- nothing but bright blue sky and the dark blue water of the sound. The faint, white rectangles lining the horizon are reflections from the windows on the opposite side of the boat.

And this is the view from the deck as we backed out of the dock at Vashon Island, the midway stopping point on our short voyage. Altogether a great day to be on the water, even if it's just for a ferry ride.
