Whidbey Island is ideal for ferry riding. Bob has marching orders to put me on a never ending ride on WA ferries if I should ever become senile. At least he would know I'd be happy! Fort Casey is the port for the Keystone Ferry, a half hour ride to Port Townsend, on the Olympic Peninsula. Fidalgo Island is the port for the San Juan Island Ferries, and also is available for the Victoria BC ferry. Am I in ferry heaven or what!
First chance we get, we head for Ft. Casey & the Keystone Ferry. Here is the view, while waiting for the ferry at Fort Casey:
The best part of leaving from Fort Casey, Whidbey Island to sail to Port Townsend, is the ferry docks right in downtown Port Townsend. The town is one of Washington's oldest, & has beautiful brick Victorian buildings all along Water Street, the main drag. Regrettably, they haven't removed the overhead power lines, and getting great photos of downtown is nearly impossible unless you're a pro with Photo Shop. The picture of Bob walking along Water Street doesn't show off the buildings, but you can get an idea of how pretty this little town really is.
