I said goodbye to an old friend recently, a friend I’ve known for 60 years. I watched from the damp, sandy shore of Ship Harbor in Anacortes as Evergreen State–a Washington state ferry–moved slowly toward her terminal.
Go anywhere in the country and ask people what comes to mind when they think of Seattle. I bet they say, throwing salmon, the Space Needle, and ferries. The Washington State Ferries system really represents Seattle and the Northwest.
