Wooden boats (and some others)


When you live in Port Townsend, you can’t help but take photos of the water. At right is the landmark Hastings Building with the Lady Washington docked nearby.

Below is one of the circa 1927 Steel Electric ferries, built in San Francisco, which served Port Townsend until 2007.

The cruise ship off of Point Wilson (below) is the Norwegian Sun, which dumped 40 tons of untreated sewage into the Strait of San Juan de Fuca in 2003.
