    Closer than you think. They are often referred to as an H12.

    I just got a private tour of Chippewa. She is indeed a private yacht now.

    Oro Bay on Anderson Island. Not sure what the big lump on the horizon is.

    Funny, I saw the same lump a bit north of you on Sunday after I rounded Point Defiance:

    I’ve lived around here all my life and I’m still amazed at the different faces that mountain can present. Oro Bay is pretty much right across from the Nisqually River delta and estuary, a left over from the last eruption. And this angle and light pretty clearly show the path of the lahar down the mountain. They say if it erupts again, this is not where you want to be.

    I agree. I am amazed how big the mountain looked from the South Sound

    Dreams to rust.

    1928 189’ ferry Ocean City. Brought from Virginia to Puget Sound via Panama Canal in 1984, intended to be the Anderson Island ferry. Never happened. Then brought to Oro Bay as a Wedding venue. Never happened. Then someone wanted to ferry RVs on cruises. Never happened.

    Knew somebody that moved to Seattle in November. She said she walked out of her front door sometime in March and said, "What the hell is that?!!"

    Lived here for several months and had never seen Tahoma ("The Big One"), also called Ti’Swaq ("Touches the Sky").
