Three Kingston-Class Coastal Defense Vessels from Canada came by Monday morning to do manoeuvers in the Sound off the Shoreline coast. 

HMCS Yellowknife led the way followed by HMCS Edmonton and HMCS Nanaimo.

HMCS Yellowknife is a Kingston-class coastal defense vessel that has served in the Canadian Forces since 1998. Yellowknife is the seventh ship of her class. She is the first vessel to use the designation Yellowknife in the Royal Canadian Navy. The coastal defense vessel is assigned to Maritime Forces Pacific and is homeported at CFB Esquimalt.

Looks like someone forgot to tell the Washington State Ferry system because the Walla Walla was headed straight at the three Canadians. Following maritime protocol, the Walla Walla yielded.

The Walla Walla turned south and headed for Seattle.

What's the big deal? The Eds-Kng crossing route always turns slightly south when departing Kingston Harbor, just as the route from Edmonds turns slightly north. **NOTHING TO SEE HERE**
