Monday was a beautiful and busy morning on the Shoreline Sea. The mountains showed off their snow-white dressings and the sea supported a bustling wake of commercial and military activity.

Puget Sound is home to a commercial salmon fleet that includes purse seines. Fish must have been in, because the fisherman were. The Admiral, Equator, Reality and Lady Rosemary, to name a few, had their nets in the water. It is interesting to watch the pulling of the drawstring as the nets are brought in.

We also had visitors from our neighbor, Canada. The military ops crafts Renard 58 and Moose 62 passed quickly by at 19.7 knots, headed for Esquimalt, near Victoria, B.C.
