Scene on the Sound: high tides and ferry exercises

Thursday, May 25, 2017

It’s the time of year when we have greater changes in daytime tide levels, seeing differences of 11 feet and more between highs to lows. The day before yesterday Puget Sound was so calm that one could see the tide coming in.

Then Tuesday there were interesting exercises back and forth and round about for several hours with one of the new Washington State Ferries, military vessels, and even a helicopter participating.

There is behind the scenes work going on to keep us safe.  Thank you to the brave on land, on sea and in the air.
