A Bit of Elliott Bay Marina -- 9/27/2014

With our time remaining at Elliott Bay getting short, I walk around the marina a bit to explore. Cruise ships come on Saturdays and Sundays and I enjoy hearing their horns as they prepare for departure.  The breakwater blocks some of the view of vessel traffic, but a trip to N Dock nearest their port gives me a better look.

I spend some time photographing some of my favorites....

Westerdam of Holland America


Dr. Jake and MoonShadow

Salish Rover

As we reflect on our time here, we remember the friends in Seattle and greater Seattle area, as well as those who unexpectedly cross our path.

The marina campus is safe to walk in the evening, and we enjoy the welcoming of Maggie Bluff's restaurant to pets.

"Pet Parking"

Herb walks to several shops nearby, and even to Stimson and Shilshole.  (He took the bus back from Shilshole.)  


Surprise encounter -- Jeanne and Ed


A walk up the ramp from our slips reveals a lovely setting of rock and plantings at high tide and clear, clear water.

From B Dock to N Dock we pass the showers, where lively music is played so you don't have to sing.

Then we get a view of Seahawks' 12th Man flag flying on the bluff overlooking the marina.

Oh, the wind shifts and you can read "12."

Next to Maggie Bluff's is the office, where Harbormaster Brian offers donuts and coffee every morning.


Back at our slip Herb gets a few shots of the Westerdam as she sails away, and I soon learn from Vicki that our friend Susan is aboard and takes a fabulous photo of Elliott Bay Marina.
