One of the most iconic symbols (is it redundant to say both iconic and symbol? whatever) of life on the Puget Sound is the ferry boat. A little while ago my mom and I decided to get out of town for the day and drive to a lavender farm in Sequim (pronounced like squid but with an m on the end instead). We took the ferry across the Sound and as you can probably tell from my mom's face in the photo, it was cold and windy, or possibly she was just annoyed that I was sticking a camera in her face. Despite that, it turned out to be a great little day trip.
