Spending a Day on Vashon Island

Visiting Vashon Island The rain was falling hard and a fading fog hung thirty feet above the dark Puget Sound waters—just enough light to see the giant metal mouth of the M/V Chetzemoka maneuvering in for a safe docking. Once aboard, most people stay in the cars. It’s...
