Watery wonderland

Water levels are very high at the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve adjacent to the state ferry terminal. Rainfall runoff flows from surrounding highlands to the wetland below, with much of the water ultimately feeding into the saltwater harbor.

Mountain water

With steady rainfall, “waterfalls” such as this are too many to number at the base of Fidalgo Island’s beautiful Mt. Erie. Water levels are rising in lakes including Campbell, Heart and Erie.

Fire and rain

Work at Dakota Creek Shipyard is not hampered by a bit of rain. Workers were out bright and early Monday morning. In this scene a welder on the second level of a new vessel is being observed by a co-worker from the deck above. An interesting project if you get a chance to check it […]
