Old Ferry Dock

Old Ferry Dock I
Old Ferry Dock II

This is the old ferry dock in downtown Port Townsend, Washington. In the early days of the town, the so-called “Mosquito Fleet” provided regular transportation around Puget Sound. Later, a scheduled ferry service was started and the current ferry provides service to Whidbey Island from a dock just a few blocks from this location.

I liked the Great Blue Heron on the top of the pilings in the upper photo … and in the far distance, Mt Rainier. The lower image shows just a hint of the Olympic Mountains … and a seagull standing on one leg.

Walking Piers

Port Townsend has refurbished a number of piers to provide for walkers to enjoy the views from the waterfront along Port Townsend Bay and Puget Sound. The mountains in the lower image are the North Central Cascades … in the other direction, the Olympics are much closer.
