To get to Vashon Island, you have to take the ferry from Seattle. Here’s Nan on the ferry, having picked me up at the airport. This is my first view of Vashon. It was Tuesday, July 19th.
As expected, it was gray and gloomy, cold and windy, at 11:30 in the morning. Here’s another view of Vashon from the ferry.
I don’t have Photo Shop on this computer. Thought I’d never need it. So the pictures are come as they are, unedited.
It was after we drove off the ferry, through Vashon, that I began to see what it looks like. That is. what it looked like to someone with very different expectations.
I don’t yet have the pictures that show what so surprised me. They will come.
The sun did come out that afternoon, and it’s been sunny every day since. I am here during the only time of the year when that is likely to happen.
