Grateful: Waiting for the ferry

Last weekend we had a short wait to pick up my sister at the ferry. We’re always looking for an opportunity to walk. You’ll notice a theme in our walks…most of them end up somewhere around water, don’t they? I know, we were waiting for a ferry! We could have walked at home first, but if there’s a chance to walk the docks or the beach, we always choose it.

The is the waterfront in Edmonds, WA.

Lovely, eclectic sculpture to be had there, like these bronze limpets, scattered all up and down the walkway.This is only a tiny sample of all there is to see, and I’m grateful for all the varied pieces.

Last time we were here, this crowd all sported classy black mustaches. Even the seagull.

There are living sculpture to enjoy, too. Birds gathered on the mirror of the water.

We made it out to the corner of the fishing pier as the ferry approached, and there was a crowd looking at the fish hatchery’s salmon pen in the water below. A smiling baby seal was lounging there, clearly enjoying all the attention.

The handy shelf made it easy to relax.

We made it back from our walk just as the ferry started to unload, and ended our evening with dinner out on the waterfront, savoring the falling dusk.
