We are again hosting the Victorian Festival Teas this year. I’m a tea drinker and huge fan of the whole process of having “Afternoon Tea”! Something about “tea sandwiches & scones” always gets my attention…
Join us for a lovely time with friends and tea, here at the Blue Gull Inn, March 24~25…see you there!

New ferry Salish begins sea trials April 13

SEATTLE – Keep a look out for the new state ferry Salish this week as it completes builder’s sea trials in Puget Sound. The vessel is expected to begin serving the Port Townsend-Coupeville route this summer, restoring full two-boat service to the route for the first time since 2007.

Contractor Todd Pacific Shipyards is conducting sea trials to demonstrate the vessel to U.S. Coast Guard and WSDOT Ferries Division (WSF) inspectors before WSF accepts delivery of the vessel. Later this spring, WSF crews will begin operational training and familiarization with the Salish on the Port Townsend/Coupeville route to get the vessel ready to sail this summer. “We’re pleased to be getting this vessel on the water for its initial sea trials on schedule and on budget,” said Steve Welch, President.

“These sea trials bring the state one step closer to getting a second new ferry into service,” said David Moseley, assistant secretary for WSF. “Much like our friends in Port Townsend and Whidbey Island, we look forward to the Salish restoring full service on the route.”

The Salish’s sister ship, the Chetzemoka, began service on the Port Townsend-Coupeville route in November 2010
