Ferry trip from Bainbridge Island to Seattle WA

Today we took the ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle. Bainbridge Island is at the end of SR-305, about 8 miles east of Poulsbo and the rv park. It's a straight shot from the rv park to the ferry and since we were walk-ons, it was easy to park and board. We wanted to see how difficult it would be to take the RV across on the ferry and found out we don't need reservations and it won't cost much more to take the ferry than driving the extra 60 miles down and around through Tacoma. We've taken the RV on 3 ferries in the past, on the east coast, and it's really kind of fun.

Anyway....the ferry ride was very nice, only about 1/2 hour from start to finish. Once in Seattle, we walked around Pike's market which is known for it's fish market where they throw the fish around and over peoples' heads! It's actually a building with 3 floors of little shops and craft booths. There are several street musicians throughout...Ed loves to stop and listen (and of course contribute to their earnings!). As usual, the only item he purchased was dog treats for Emma!

On our way back to the ferry, we stopped for lunch at Ivar's... recommended by Eddie's friend, Patrick. Good recommendation! We had fish and chips and it was delicious!
