A windy day on Puget Sound

Last weekend, the Pacific Northwest had some very high winds, which caused power outages and fallen trees across roadways all around Western Washington.  I got in my car and headed down to the ferry dock in Edmonds, to see if I could capture the wind (well, not the wind, but maybe some effects!).  Here’s some of what I found there.

Windy Beach

This is the beach north of the ferry dock.  You can see the waves breaking against the seawall.

The surface of the water was being ruffled by the high wind.

I was lucky enough to see the ferry coming in.  I’m guessing it was a pretty rough ride that day.

There’s the ferry at the dock.  It disgorged its cargo of cars, and I took some video of the unloading.

I was standing on the breakwater just north of the dock.  Its stones looked various shades of gray, reflecting the sky above.


Just before I left, a flock of Canada Geese flew overhead, making their usual racket.  They live here year-round.
