Ferry Ride From Mukilteo to Whidbey Island | Wahsington

Sunny Sunny Sunny, but also cold cold cold, don’t be fool by the sun, even though it is super sunny and seem super nice, it is still as cold as ever!  But hey, the sun is out, that’s enough reason to get out and … yup, go for a ferry ride and enjoy that wind chill factor from the ferry deck~~

This is the best thing to do while waiting for ferry, just get out of the car, order the famous Pacific Northwest fish and chips (in my case, oyster and chips), and you can eat it in the car or on the ferry if you want to get out of the car.  Of course, all this require perfect timing, you need to get there before the ferry arrive, and enough time for the order to be completed.  The worst situation would be you are half way with an order and the ferry arrive and the cars started moving.  Please do not hesitate, say good bye the hot and juicy fried fish and go!  You can cry, but please do not block traffic :)

A ferry ride is one of the best way to enjoy the magnificent water view of Puget Sound, everything looks better viewing from the ferry.

Waterfront apartments by the ferry dock, on the right is the charming Mukilteo lighthouse, there will be another post or the lighthouse.

Not a very busy day, the ferry is not full, why?  Because it is really really freaking cold~~  Not sure why, but I love this photo, maybe because of the lonesome feel that it gives.

I love standing at the back deck and watch the city slowly disappear from sight, its a feeling that connects me well.  Plus the back deck is shield from all the winter draft.

It is quite rare to see a pretty empty ferry, at least for someone like me who use the ferry maybe once or twice a year.

For me, a ferry ride is for fun, but for the people who live around here, it is the most, if not only transportation method.

These outside benches are behind some large glass windows, the view is not as good as on the deck, but hey, at least you don’t have to brave the crazy freezing wind. Don’t forget, it’s winter plus wind chill factor. Translation: it’s freaking cold.

This photo is taken from inside of the ferry, which is the best way to enjoy the scenery, for not so brave, me.

Arrived! It’s really not a long ride, less than 20 minutes or so, you basically only have time to get out of your car, if that’s what you want to do, hang out and sip a cup of coffee or something, and before you know it, the announcement come and ask you to return to your vehicle and get ready to depart.

Whidbey Island, here I come~~~
