Our Newest Ferry, The Chetzemoka

I wasn't expecting riding the new ferry, but spontaneously, per usual, I decided to go to the island before going home rather than going to Paulsbo again.
It's about four months running now, the Chetzemoka. Very nice little boat. I approve this ferry!!! After this ferry, I headed home via Clinton, but Mukilteo was running to Edmonds. That run was about 50 minutes. It was smooth as glass too. sunny. Nice day, but when you're tired, you're tired.

I had to drive another 40 minutes after arriving in Edmonds. If I watched the local news I'd have known and would have just driven around instead of riding the ferry.

I may post some history on the Chetzemoka later, but as Linda said in comments it was the name of a ferry on the Mukilteo run years ago. This new one runs from Keystone on Whidbey to Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula and is one of our more substantial runs.
