Destination: Fishermen's Terminal, Seattle

Passing by Pier 57 gives us a view of the new ferris wheel.

Somewhere up there on the tenth floor are Vicki and Bruce, hopefully at a window to see us wave goodbye as we head for Fishermen's Terminal.

A short cruise today brings us to the locks between Puget Sound and Lake Union.  Herb and I have never been through the locks on Willie's Tug or by ourselves, so we are looking forward to the experience.  

The bridge opens for the large boat coming out.  

The large vessels going in with us are directed to the wall first, then we are put at the front to raft to one of them.

The guys on the neighbor boat were quick to help with my stern lines, and Herb works the bow.

A short trip farther brings us to Fishermen's Terminal in Salmon Bay.  Dinner is at Chinook's Restaurant on the waterfront.
