a first

your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy had never ridden on a ferry before.

so taking the ferry to bainbridge island yesterday was quite a new experience.

for one thing, i had no idea we were moving at all. at least not until i noticed the wind had picked up.

but what is always strange to me is seeing folks all around us...just sitting there bored, or whatever, because it's such a common occurrence to them. it kinda reminded me how easy it is to miss moments, thanks to the scourge of familiarity.

like:

seeing women wrapping themselves up in their scarves, resembling nothing so much as butterflies newly emerged from their cocoons.

the cloud cover had broken up a bit, and i finally got to see mount rainier for the first time. even as far away as we were, the sight of it was absolutely breathtaking.
