After seven high effort weeks of commissioning, provisioning, and outfitting, today we say goodbye to home port Bainbridge Island. "A three hour tour, a three hour tour." Wait. That's not it... "A three week tour, a three week tour."
Heading to Seattle is a short trip for us. It's only 35 minutes by ferry, that averages about 15 knots. We went slower, I wanted to test the watermaker again. And plus there's a lot of commercial traffic. This is what 1,000 feet of container ship looks like filling up a helm window.
Moored at Bell Harbor, it's about a ten minute walk to Pike Place Market. Where we can get the freshest fish in the area. We punished the Visa card with a 3 lb dungeness crab, some enormous shrimp (small lobsters), halibut and king salmon. Expect to see some killer meals on the blog as the trip unfolds.
But the real reason we came to Seattle today was to see Phantom of the Opera. We have season tickets at the Paramount theater, so we just worked this performance into our schedule.
And without further ado, the first pictures from Deb's iPhone on the blog! We turned on the exterior blue lights before we left and Mahalo looked so awesome when we returned.
Another of hers.
Deb really has her own creative eye. I very much enjoy her photos!
Everything looked so awesome tonight I even fired up the underwater lights and got out my real camera. I think Mahalo makes the Seattle skyline?
