20 Sep 12. We went to Pt Townsend today to meet an old Navy years friend who was coming in via the Coupeville - Pt Townsend ferry. But today turned out to be a very foggy day, 100% humidity foggy, and his arrival was delayed by two ferries as the boats were unable to negotiate the terminal at Coupeville even though the boats are full of very sophisticated equipment; not sure about the drivers however. Once he arrived we had a good time photographing the old buildings in the city as well as doing a bit of shopping. Well, Jan did a "bit" of shopping while I watched and took more photos. During our respite from shopping to get a bite to eat. with the fog still plentiful, we had an opportunity to watch the traffic on the water directly in front of and below the restaurant. At one point we watched a ferry magically appear literally out of nowhere, actually nowhere was a fog bank, and pass at what looked to be perilously close to a moored sailboat. Now, since it is almost impossible to judge distance over water, it likely wasn't all that close but close enough to make for an interesting set of images of which today's submission is one of them. Look ever so closely. Nikon D300s; Aperture Priority; 18 - 200; ISO 200; 1/400 sec @ f /13.
