    Today, I'm sitting on the ferry, car engine started, ready to follow the car in front of me down our lane and off onto land. All the cars in front and behind me have their engines revving, ready to go. Suddenly, I see blue flashing lights beside me, outside the ferry, in the water. I look and its a Coast Guard boat. So (of course - wouldn't YOU) I fumble around in my pocket and pull out my camera to take a picture of it for Wazza. The boat even has a great big gun on the front. I snap a picture. But I can't get a very good angle and I have manual roll down windows, which in this kind of pinch are too slow - so, I open my car door and climb partially out. About this time I realize...there are now no cars in front of me and a ferry worker is madly waving the lane next to me through. Mind you ferry riders have a very specific sense of what the order of departure from the ferry should be. Very specific. Behind me were several of those aforemented people. I still spent a second thinking about standing all the way up and taking the shot, but - sorry Wazza, I didn't have the guts.

    At least you got the top of the boat, Diane..and the gun. Were the people behind you VERY mad?? Never mind I already know the answer.

    Keeper of the hens

    Hehe did you feel the burning glare of dozens of angry commuters in the back of your neck?

    I hate how drivers get so annoyed at the slightest hold up (even if further along they'd be waiting for the ferry's departure time anyway)!

    Gets like the M25 in the summer with all the boaties around. Is that Marlow, Wazza? Looks like Marlow or Bourne End...
    Diane's rerally getting sucked in. It'll be pictures of ice rinks for Kate, and then telling her clients to post pictures of their pianos on Hencam - "I think you may find it very cathartic..." !

    My theory is that they couldn't believe their eyes, in regard to what was actually causing the delay - so they all decided that my car had broken down and therefore waited politely. Because the whole lane next to us had almost finished unloading before I noticed and no one behind me honked. The ferry guy did yell something at me, which CC could probably best interpret, as I drove by him. But I had my photo for Wazza, so I was happy.

    That's an EXCELLENT boat there W. :)

    The gun on the Coast Guard boat was pretty shocking. I'm sure it was purchased with Homeland Security funds. Our ferry is also sniffed fore and aft, as are our cars, by bomb sniffing dogs. The reason is our proximity to Canada and all the scary Canucks living there (sorry Nancy.)

    My friend has an old coastguard boat which is like a glorified bathtub. We get odd looks as our boatload of shrieking hoydens in a bathtub pass the more usual gin palaces, waving bottles of cheap wine...

    Oh I SO want to see a photo of THAT! Please. Maybe you can get Wazza to take it before he arrests you.

    Scary, isn't it?

    CC my main addiction to coffee is the actual cafe. We have some lovely places to gather on Whidbey. I sat there with my friend Teri for two hours today and we must have seen and chatted with at least 20 people we know (and their assorted dogs.)
