Tuesday/ on the ferry ⛴

Here are a few photos that I took while I was on the 11.05 am Kingston-to-Edmonds ferry today.

Shortly after departure, with the Kingston Ferry Terminal on Kitsap Peninsula in the distance.
Sailboat with dinghy in tow, getting towed. Those are Kitsap Peninsula homes in the background.
Here comes the Commander, a passenger-only Kitsap Fast Ferry from Seattle’s Pier 50.
The Commander was built in 2021, and has a cruising speed of 35 knots (top speed 37 knots).
Marine Vessel Spokane is a Jumbo-class ferry servicing the Edmonds-Kingston route. She was built in 1972.
The tug boat is the Ocean Ranger, built in 1990 and sailing under the flag of the USA.
Look for the spec in the sky— possibly a Kenmore Air seaplane.
I am on the Marine Vessel Puyallup, in service since 1999 and a Jumbo Mark-II-class ferry. This ferry and her two sisters MV Tacoma and MV Wenatchee are the largest in the Washington State fleet of ferries.
Mr. Seagull is not perturbed by the ferry’s arrival at Edmonds terminal.
