My time in Port Townsend was short in part because I needed to catch the first ferry if I wanted to do all the things I wanted to do in Seattle later that day. The first ferry left early! Like, 6:30 a.m. or so.
I skipped breakfast and got to the pier early enough to take a few pictures of the Olympic Mountains to the south. Soon enough I was in line and parked in the bowels of the ferry.
When I made the ferry reservation there was a list of rules, one of which was that drivers had to stay with their cars because the trip only took thirty minutes. As you can see, there wasn't much of a view where I was parked. I wanted to walk around the ferry, but half-heartedly tried to write a few postcards before dozing off.
You know what woke me up? An announcement that the ferry was going to be docking in a few minutes and that drivers should return to their vehicles. No fair! Ah, well, it was on to Whidbey Island.
