A tour of Bainbridge Island

Bremerton, United States

Day - 41 Sunday 31st May 2009

Met up with Betty Ann at a nice little café for our morning coffee:

Then off to the nearest beach for Charlie to have a last swim in the Pacific, or at least, Puget Sound. Well, that was the plan, but although the water was quite cold, it was the scum floating on the surface of the water that put Charlie off getting right in. The thought of a green beard was somewhat offputting!

That's Mt. Rainier, an active volcano (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Rainier) in the background by the way.

After a lovely barbecue at David's place, we went for a bit of sightseeing and started planning our leaving of the Seattle area tomorrow, and there are several ways of getting across Puget Sound to Seattle:

This is the Bainbridge Island ferry, there's also the Bremerton Ferry; here are the two Bremerton Ferries passing each other:

And another shot of Barbara and David (Betty Ann's brother) watching the Bainbridge Island ferry go past, with Seattle in the background:

We also spent a bit of time with Betty Ann's dogs:

And then Betty Ann showed us her new car:

Then up to a nearby harbour to enjoy the sunset from a harbourside bar:

Nice views of the church and other parts of the town:

And a lovely sunset with the boats bobbing at their moorings and the occasional seal swimming around between them:

Just time then for a farewell photo as David & Betty Ann have to work tomorrow and we have to pack and get ready for the flight home:
