Watery Wednesday

The only way to get from Fidalgo Island to neighboring 
Guemes Island is by this little ferry boat. 
The ride only takes a few minutes as it's only 
one kilometer from dock to dock, 
but the channel between Anacortes and little Guemes 
can have tidal flows of up to four knots 
and the winds can blow quite strongly, too. 

I always like to stop and watch the ferry 
plow back and forth, especially when the channel waters are rough.
Today's watery photo shows a very calm day, though...

I'm glad the water is smooth, otherwise I might get seasick looking at the photo. --- OK, you're right. I'm only kidding. ;-)
