San Juandering

A familiar ferry ride home:

the glimpse of Mt. Baker,
the small thrill at starting to move
(and the delight of those not accustomed to the journey),
the churning water as engines fire up,
the summer hordes that crowd the deck,
the selfie-takers,
the family moments with kids too young to squirm away from their mothers’ embrace,
the shadows that shift as the vessel turns,
and the settling in for an hour on the strait.
