The skies are sunny and the winds are predicted to be 5 to 15 with wind waves of one to two. Nice day for a boat ride.
We go north through Agate Passage with a 3.5 knot current on the nose.
Watching closely, we see a float plane off our port side preparing for takeoff, then circling and heading to the south of us.
Ah, now as we cruise along we see the Seattle skyline (and Bruce and Vicki's window) far in the distance.
The boat engaged in fishing appears to be very engaged in bringing a catch on board.
Now we are very excited to see the Adventuress, a historic 133 ft. schooner involved in sail training and education. She is one mile away, and we hear her call Seattle Traffic to cross the shipping lanes near Point No Point.

The waters are fairly calm with nice swells in Admiralty Inlet, but otherwise smooth near Bush Point. We encounter confused water between Lagoon Point and Marrowstone Island, with rips near Port Townsend.
Matthew Perry, a military ship, goes into Port Townsend, but we are not shown any more information on her. I am impressed with her size and appearance, and wonder about her mission.
