10:28 AM: For water-watchers: Longtime WSB’er MIWS (Mike) tips us that the small private ferry serving Herron Island in the South Sound, Charlie Wells, will be passing West Seattle a bit later this morning. It’s headed to drydock in Ballard and as of this writing MarineTraffic.com shows it northbound in Colvos Passage between west Vashon and east South Kitsap, so it’s likely to come into view near Blake Island before too long. If you happen to get a photo, please share – we might not get down to the water in time. (Here’s a 2013 Flickr pic.)
12:47 PM: Thanks to Greg for the photo we’ve added above!
