Water color


Usually, the Victoria Clipper goes on a relatively straight line from Seattle to Victoria. On the day of my trip, a storm in the Strait of Juan de Fuca would have made for a rough trip*, so we took an alternate – and much longer – route north through the San Juan Islands. It was less open water, and more to look at. Like water on the windows…

*Prior to departure an announcement was made regarding the availability of motion-sick medicine onboard. It was, “If you know you are prone to motion sickness, if you think you are prone to motion sickness, or you don’t want to find out if you are prone to motion sickness, you can purchase tablets at the concession stand.” It was the best twenty five cents I’ve ever spent.

  1. Great Image.
    I would definitely need the motion sick medicine !


  2. Ugh! Motion, can’t see the horizon, longer trip, oh my


  3. Glad you popped that pill. If I can keep my eyes on land, it stabilizes the issue.


  4. I love the texture effect the water on the window has on the rest of the scene.


  5. I absolutely love this shot, Melinda


  6. Reminds me of riding the Washington State Ferry in the San Juans – something I did from the age of about 3 nearly every year as my dad would do his research at the Friday Harbor marine station on San Juan Island every summer. In fact he was just there a week or two ago, still doing a bit of research at the age of 85, though he gave up his grant last year.
