Scaring The Wildlife

I didn’t mean to, of course! Need a better zoom lens for this kind of stuff, I think…

Up And Out Of The Water

One of our favorite little tugs, Quilceda, is out on the dry dock at Hansens Boat Yard just down the slough. There was a bunch of commotion out here around 7:00 this morning and next thing I knew they were pulling her out. I’m not sure if it was scheduled or not, but Hansen’s is definitely convenient!

Her sister ship, Fidalgo, was busy at work in the river today. She was pulling a huge barge up river when I last saw her. The Snohomish River bridge has been closed at least twice today; traffic has been quite snarly.

The weather has had a huge break ~ it’s warm and sunshine is peeking through! Hallelujah! I’ve been wandering about the docks in my bare feet, just because I can. It’s supposed to get into the 50’s today, but the current 46 degrees feels just wonderful to me.
