Why so many photos of ferries? Take a look at a map of western Washington and you will get the point. If you want to go west from where I live you can proceed for about 400 yards and then you will need a boat unless you want to get wet. This is true from Olympia on the south end of the Puget Sound to well up into Canada. There is only one bridge way down in South Tacoma and unless you want to drive many miles out of your way to take that bridge you will need to take a boat trip.
I can see the Fauntleroy to Vashon run from where I live. The sights and sounds of ferries and sea gulls and mountains and water are images that represent life in Seattle.
