Right now I’m on a business trip to Seattle; for a change, I’ve got my personal laptop along too. I wonder how many travelers with two laptops go through airport security in any given day?
Anyway, I had a bit of time free between arriving in town and the start of my meetings (plus, of course, as many night hours as I want to wander around) — this will be the first in a series of shots from my trip. First stop, Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats on the south end of Lake Union.
Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, I actually got a couple of cloudless days here! From the placard:
The Steam Ship Virginia V was built in 1922 to carry freight and passengers from Vashon Island to Seattle and Tacoma. Once one of over 300 ships of her type, she is the last operating vessel from the famous Puget Sound ‘Mosquito Fleet.’ Now a National Historic Landmark Vessel, the Virginia V continues her mission of providing a unique view into the ‘golden age of steam.’
