Ferry to Bainbridge
Today I took the ferry to Bainbridge Island to visit a friend. I love the ferries! The crossing to Bainbridge takes only 25 minutes, but you feel like you’re in a very different place when you land. I’m disappointed in myself, though. I had wanted to be really “green” and take the bus from Burien to the ferry dock and then walk onto the ferry as a foot passenger instead of driving my car on – but I was running late, so I spent the money and the gas and drove on. Oh well – next time!
One of my favorite views in the Seattle area is the skyline as you return to the mainland, as viewed from the Bainbridge ferry. I heard rumors of whale sightings from the ferries the last few days, but I didn’t spot any today.
