I learned that the float-off would take place on Saturday morning, April 25th. So I loaded up my doggie, Starbucked my thermos, and did the hour drive to Port Angeles, arriving early, about 8 a.m.
Since the Blue Marlin was on the hook closer to Ediz Hook than the Port Angeles Esplanade, I elected to park on the Hook a short distance from the Puget Sound Pilot Station.
Black Ball Ferry Coho got back from 1st trip to Victoria, B.C.
The submarine escort vessels returned to port. Note rapid fire guns!
By 7 p.m., it was apparent nothing would take place until the next day, Sunday. So I decided to wait for sundown to get shots with the vessels lit up.
I really didn't come prepared for a lengthy session, reasoning the float-off would have been completed hours earlier. With my Key Grip out of snacks, we packed it in and decided to drive back to Port Townsend.
To be continued.
