What Are They Looking At? Another nice sail on the Steilacoom II and a Natural Bridge

 I took two pictures of these folks enjoying the back deck of the Steilacoom II to capture the rock of the boat. Note the difference in the horizon between the two pictures. The Port Townsend to Keystone run crosses the entrance to Admiralty Inlet between Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. As such there are occasions when there is a bit of ocean swell. The ride is not long enough to get sea sick on. At least I have never seen anyone get sick, but I was on the boat once when a wave broke through the car deck.

Anyway as last evening's crossing progressed the sunset got better and better and brought lots of folks out onto the deck.

Most of yesterday's ventures were simple hazard assessments, but one site had an odd feature that is a first for me. A small slope failure leaving a natural bridge.

I just love those sunsets, out on the water, waves or no waves.

And MOH loves natural bridges and caves, and we stop at them every chance we get.
