The late-morning starts out suitably winter grey, as the ferry leaves Seattle to traverse Puget Sound to Bremerton on the Kitsap Peninsula. On the return ferry to Seattle on board the MV Kaleetan, the fog and low stratus hang over the entire Sound, and I’m resigned to seeing a grim grey cloak for the entire trip. From the corner of my eye, I see something shimmer: it’s reflected sunlight from the Seattle skyline. The fog parts enough for a view of familiar landmarks from the television broadcast towers on Queen Anne Hill (left, north), the Space Needle (center-left), to the Columbia Center and the Smith Tower (right, south), as the early-afternoon sun casts a warm glow over the entire skyline. In the distance, WS Ferry MV Puyallup is about to dock at the Seattle ferry terminal.
