Leaving Kingston in the Dim Daylight by 


Taken from the Kingston Ferry as we were heading back to Montana. Kingston is located on Bainbridge Island in Washington (USA). The Hood Canal Bridge connects this island with the Olympic Peninsula. You can catch the ferry in Edmonds, north of Seattle, to get there.

I love this little town and wish we could afford to live there. It may rain here, 150 days a year, but the Olympic Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Unfortunately, my asthma prevents me from spending more than a few days at a time visiting my family.

“Founded in 1853 by Benjamin Bannister the community was originally known as Apple Tree Cove, By 1880 it was a lumber town until the mill closed down in the early 20th century. But the local lumber yard is still in business today, owned by Tom Wagoner. Known as the “Little city by the sea”, Kingston is the northern gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. Now it is the social and economic center of the north end of the Kitsap Peninsula." [from the wikipedia article]

Photo taken by Kathleen Emerson, in September 2010 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. Contrast adjustment was done in Photoshop CS.

    Spectacular view! Fabulous capture Kathleen!

  • Thank you, Jackie! It was so frustrating, to only be able to spend a day there. We spent the other three days traveling back and forth.

  • Thank you, Sherri! I forgot to add that information. Kingston is located on Bainbridge Island, across Puget Sound from Seattle. Shaun took some photos here that show the skyline of Seattle in the background.
