    Jan, that is quite a photo!  Plane above the ferry?

      No, it’s a whale. (HA!) The plane was so low-flying, it caught our attention. I was across the street and saw the biker coming and framed it fast. Then I caught some one on a scooter just after the bike went by– it’s pretty cool, too. Google Pixel, no edits.

    Holy moly, the shuttle (775) is running on the weekends now?? And until late at night on Fridays and Saturdays?? I never saw a post about that but that’s great news!

      The shuttle and the water taxi always run together but good point, we should have explicitly mentioned that – will do in a standalone update this weekend,

        They still have their Mon-Fri schedule up at the stops. My phone died so I just walked up the hill and then the shuttles appeared.

    I just walked back from the “drug take-back” at the SW Precinct. No line, just walked right up. It’s on the South side of the building so you can walk or drive without having to deal with Home Depot traffic.

      Thank you for the update!

    This IS quite a photo!  How you captured all that activity in one frame, and still imparted the beauty and stillness.  Thanks for sharing, Ms. Pendergrass!
