Getting to Bainbridge Island -- Saturday, January 28, 2017

Bruce's promise of pleasant, sunny, weather comes true again this morning as Herb and I enjoy a fabulous sunrise aboard Willie's Tug in Lake Union.  The pinks, yellows, and fiery reds paint a picture not equaled on canvas by human hands with an artist's brush.  

And a nice reflection in the port side windows of the boat.

So our day begins as we look ahead to the annual meeting of the Eagle Harbor Yacht club.  Having been members for a couple of years, we have never been in the Pacific Northwest to meet new friends and do some boating with them.  But today we leave Willie's Tug behind and opt for a ferry ride from Seattle over to Bainbridge Island for the get together.

Along our walk to the ferry terminal, we get a bonus -- an up close view of Amazon's geodesic dome, which will be its new novelty headquarters, housing a gigantic greenhouse with grassy mounds and trees to provide a flexible workspace for up to 1,800 employees.  There will also be an off-lease dog park. 

Imagine that!

Arriving at the ferry terminal we grab a cup of steaming hot Seattle coffee as we get in line to purchase tickets for the ride across Puget Sound, leaving the city behind.

Find the wheel that Willie won't ride....
