Lien Titus was surprised to see a Washington state ferry headed south past Richmond Beach.

Jan Hansen says that "Ferries go past north, south, east, west and in circles at various times. Often they are shuttled north and south to augment heavy traffic schedules or to substitute for vessels needing maintenance or repair.  Sea trials put boats through their paces and include circular patterns."

She identified this ferry as the M/V Sealth, which is occasionally moved between the San Juan Island routes and the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth route.
