August 5, 2016 – We took the Washington State Ferry across Puget Sound to visit Markey and Jim Dokken. Markey is a long-time volunteer with the Feingold Association, so I have known her forever.
Some people, like the lady below, used the time well, working under the hood of her car. We, on the other hand, just sat around and took pictures.
A view of the ocean and dock mechanicals from inside the ferry. I can’t imagine people really climbing up on those ladders, but I suppose they are there for a reason.

We had a great visit with Markey and Jim
Here – with Markey, Jim, and Tom – you can see the remains of our dinner and a bit of the outside of their really wonderful fairy-tale-beautiful house. How did we manage not to take a ton of pictures? I think we were too busy talking.
Markey and Jim shared this picture they took of a pair of bald eagles perched on a little boat near their house dock.
We drove back the long way around instead of taking the ferry home. Then the next day, Markey and Jim met us at the Ferry port in Edmonds, and we went to Arnie’s Seafood Restaurant.
