photo: night ferry

brightly lit and completely empty ferry

This is what the last ferry at night out from Bremerton looks like. I was on foot and barely made it, I half-jogged the few miles from the house of the friend I was visiting, sprinted up the pedestrian entrance and moments after I got on board the ferry pulled away.

There were very few people with me, one was a very big and ominous bald man with the most amazing and delicate flower tattoo covering his scalp. I wanted to rub his head but thought he might take it the wrong way.

    Hmmm, that photo looks a lot like the photo I have set as my current wallpaper. Could it be the same ferry…
    If you have Vista (I know, groan), look in C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper and check out image1.jpg

    I really like the mood of this photo. It’s so interesting to me. And, it makes me want to take this kind of ferry ride. (Here, we only have car ferries that cross the river.)

    I used to live on that side of the water. It’s funny to see that the Bremerton ferry has never been redecorated while the Bainbridge, Vashon, etc. ferries are quite snazzy by comparison.

    I absolutely remember those seats and that long, slow ride. It used to be just the thing to sober up after a night of drinking in Pioneer Square. How I’ve changed! And…how it has not. Great post. Jill

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to suppress urges like that… :)
