    What’s going on with those sailboats by the Fauntleroy ferry terminal? Is there an event?

      Yes, there is! Sorry, I get out of the habit of checking the Local Notice to Mariners this time of year …. it lists the Duwamish Head Race. If I get pics we’ll post something, thanks for pointing it out!
